Planting & Care
In the seasonally dry tropics of northern Australia, seed planted on the surface of a recently burnt area will soften rapidly under the influence of a hot sun. It is generally ready to germinate after the first rain. Further south, the rate of softening is slower, and it is normal to scarify half the sample by depodding prior to planting. This gives some seed ready for immediate germination while preserving some hard seed as an insurance against false germinations.

Sunlight: Full Sun

Soil: well-drained soil

Water: Medium

Temprature: 2–6 degrees Celcius

Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

Care:
  • S.
  • scabra is a summer-growing perennial with some strains possessing slight frost tolerance, giving them a long growing season.
  • The tops are tolerant of light frosts and the crowns of quite heavy frosts.


Care:
  • While best adapted to infertile, acid, sandy-surfaced soil, especially solodics, shrubby stylo is more versatile in its soil requirements than most stylos and at times will grow in heavier textured, less acid soils.
  • Such results have been variable and planting on such soils is currently not recommended.


Special Feature:
Mainly used as perennial pasture, in association with sown and native grasses. Used for cut-and-carry in some countries. Young regrowth has qualities that suggest value for fodder conservation. Agroforestry potential providing shade not too intense.
Use

Note:
Anthracnose is endemic in the natural habitats of the shrubby stylos in South America, but was first identified in Australia only in 1974, as cvs Seca and Fitzroy were about to be released. The present situation is extremely dynamic. In Australia, the only other serious disease is Botrytis head blight (Botrytis cinerea), which can be a problem in seed crops in years with overcast weather during flowering.
