Caring for Stylonthus Scabra Grass

  • S. scabra is very drought tolerant; plants that have received no rain since the previous April will shoot with the rising temperatures.
  • 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.
  • Spreads readily and widely on some soil types. especially sandy surfaced solodics, but spread on soils with hard-setting surfaces.
  • Suited to aerial seeding or ground spreading, depending on the sophistication of the farming system.
