      plant/shrub roots - Pond Liner????

      Hey all!

      I am redoing some of my waterfalls and I would like to have a shrub or bushy plant, preferrably something evergreen to plant at the bottom waterfall.

      The spot where I want to plant would touch the liner of the pond. This part is about 1 ft above waterlevel and was pulled up and over the bank to lap behind the first waterfall tier. Is there a guide or general rule as to how invasive roots are. If ithe roots were to go down about a foot, they would be down to waterlevel on the pond liner. Is this to close to plant? I have seen so many pictures with plants seemingly growing right next to pond borders.

      Any suggestions as to what plants/shrubs would be suitable would be great! Thanks in advance.

      Tink

      good question
      I guess it would depend on the plant
      I did not even think about it when I planted next to my pond
