Celebration Bermuda Grass is an Australian Breed Cynodon dactylon developed by renowned turfgrass breeder Rod Riley that offers specifiers, landscapers, golf course designers, sports turf managers, and homeowners exceptional performance across a wide spectrum of applications. Celebration Bermuda Grass requires less mowing than typical bermuda varieties and has tough runners, rhizomes, and deep roots that provide excellent sod strength, wearability, and improved drought tolerance. Reduced production costs are achieved by Celebration’s rapid expansion rate, reproduction from rhizomes, and natural chemical resistances (similar to other Bermudagrasses) for easier weed control. Celebration is the first bermuda grass to exhibit improved shade tolerance in sports turf comparisons, ranking #1 in a recent Clemson University study, and has gained popularity in Golf and Sport Turf applications for its ability to thrive in filtered shade. In fact, Celebration Bermuda Grass is the most shade tolerant commercially available turf grass. Celebration has also been rated #1 by SAWS and in several comparative bermuda grass studies for its excellent drought tolerance.
Celebration has proven its ability to thrive in hot, humid conditions in a variety of applications and has performed well in sandy and clay soil types with aggressive growth from its runners and rhizomes. Celebration can be mowed with a standard rotary mower due to its broader leaf and open growth habit. This versatile turf grass has thrived in agricultural zones 6b-11 and is being tested in zones 5 and 6a for cold hardiness extremes.
