Celebration™ Bermudagrass is an Australian Breed Cynodon dactylon 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. Celebration™ 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. While shade tolerance research is ongoing at the university level, Celebration™ 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.
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™ 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 turfgrass has thrived in agricultural zones 6b-11 and is being tested in zones 5 and 61 for cold hardiness extremes.
All Celebration™ bermudagrass grown and distributed across the United States is certified by local state crop certification agencies that provide rigid standards and regulations for production, harvesting, and handling, that when adhered to, ensure a genetically pure, high quality, “certified” product.
