Around the central PA area I'm noticing a lot of decorative grasses being used. I think that might be my first choice when we install our new pool. More opinions from FAQ Farmers: * In Texas we've had great luck with vinca, petunias, begonias and pansies. We also have blue rug juniper nearby. * Our landscaper placed decorative grasses around the edge of our salt water pool and they did the survive the summer. * We've had ivy (english I believe) growing from the surrounding area into the water and it doesn't seem to die back at all.

No. The chlorine kills anything trying to grow in the water including any plants. Of the chlorine should evaporate or if only in a small dose then some plants may survive.

Chlorine is toxic to plants.

Flowers or plants can not live in chlorine treated water. This is because the chlorine chemicals shutdown the organelles of the plants cells.

Yes...they can run/fly away from the fire and either return after the fire or live in another area nearby.
