Celebration Bermudagrass is a selected mutation of Cynodon dactylon, a hybrid cultivar of Bermuda, chosen specifically for its dark blue-green color, low growing habit, adaptability to light-moderate shade, excellent drought tolerance and ability to reduce production costs while demonstrating desirable growth characteristics.
Celebration Bermudagrass is an Australian Breed developed by renowned turfgrass breeder Rod Riley that offers specifiers, landscapers, golf course designers, sportsturf managers and homeowners exceptional performance across a wide spectrum of applications. It requires less mowing than typical bermudagrass varieties and has tough runners, rhizomes, and deep roots that provide excellent sod strength, wearability, and improved drought tolerance. While shade tolerance research is ongoing at the university level, it is the first bermudagrass to exhibit improved tolerance in sportsturf comparisons. Celebration has also been included in several comparative bermudagrass studies including the 2002 National Turfgrass Evaluation Program (NTEP) trials where early observations are very promising.
