HABIT OF GROWTH [Newspaper Article] — The West Wyalong Advocate — 23 March 1928
. HABIT OF GROWTH The plant commtences growth In winter, the leaves spreading out close to' the'.'ground.'Later it sends up a. branching stalk which produces flow ers and seeds in the late.summer, but unfortunately the root, which pene trates very deeply into the soil, re mains alive, and new shoots are sent up from the parent root stock. The root is known to be biennial, and it is thought that It is even longer lived. The plant is usually found in the me. ■dium to light loams of the more fav oured portions of the Rlverina and South-Western Slopes. It app'eafs to prefer the light to medium soil rath er than the heavy clay, and up to the present it is rarely found growing in the latter type of soil. The plant is eaten by sheep, and for this reason did not cause any alarm for a few, years. It( can however, withstand close grazing in stubble or on fallovr without being eradicated.
