TifGrand, also known scientifically as Cynodon dactylon (L.) Pers. × Cynodon transvaalensis Burtt Davy, is scientifically bred to withstand up to 50% shade. This fine-textured turfgrass produces naturally dark green blades and maintains its coloring under reduced nitrogen inputs better than other Bermuda grasses. This vigorous-growing grass is best known for its shade tolerance, which makes it a perfect fit for partially shaded lawns, parks and sports fields.

TifGrand (PP21017) was developed by Dr. Wayne Hanna and released by the University of Georgia, Tifton Campus. It is only reproduced vegetatively so is not available to grow from seed.
TifGrand Bermuda turfgrass is scientifically developed to withstand up to 50% shade, provided soils are well-drained, competition from tree roots is minimized, and 4-5 hours of direct sunlight is received. For TifGrand to maintain its shade tolerance, it has to be mowed below 1" cutting height. Unlike other turfgrasses, the lower TifGrand's mowing height in the shade, the more its shade tolerance is increased. TifGrand has a hard time recovering from growing long, then being scalped. Provided the above criteria are met, TifGrand Bermuda turfgrass performs in shade better than other hybrid Bermuda turfgrasses like Tifway and TifSport.
