Does anyone have experience or advice with elephant ears being planted close to the pool? I planted some a few years back and they have thrived because they are close to the filter and where the backwash drains. They have moved under the deck toward the pool. Today I noticed one growing right up next to the edge of the pool. Are their roots destructive to the liner?
I really wanted to plant cane close to the pool and didn't because I know its roots can spread three feet or more underground. Everything I read said elephant ears were good landscape around a pool, however nothing mentions it growing AGAINST the pool. This year, I transplanted several banana trees within four or five feet of the pool. I pray I didn't mess up there?
Thanks in advance!
