Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon) is a warm-season grass that is native to Africa. It is a widely used turf grass in many parts of the world, including the United States. Bermuda grass has a dense, fine-textured appearance and a bright green color. It has a creeping growth habit and spreads by above-ground stolons (stems that grow along the surface of the ground). The leaves of Bermuda grass are slender and pointed, and they grow in a vertical orientation. The grass has a high tolerance for heat and drought, and it is well-suited to areas with full sun exposure. It is also known for its ability to recover quickly from damage and wear.
