Hibiscus syriacus 'Notwoodtwo', or white althea, is also called Rose of Sharon. Your plant will reach 5-8' high and about 5' wide at maturity. You can prune it back to keep it smaller. It does not have invasive roots and should not be a problem within 6' of an in-ground pool. Best wishes with your garden!
