Overview

FOR USE ON HIGH END LAWNS, SPORTS FIELDS, GOLF COURSES and PARKS

Tahoma 31 bermudagrass was developed by leading turf scientists at Oklahoma State University.  Tahoma 31 derives its name from the Native American word, Tahoma, which means frozen in water. 

Tahoma 31 has demonstrated resilience and excelled in key metrics compared to other popular bermudagrasses.  It shows exceptional winter hardiness and tested up to 75% more cold tolerant than other bermudagrass varieties. 

Tahoma 31 was bred with improved drought resistance in mind. This special grass has deep roots, and requires a reduced amount of water to maintain healthy growth.  

With the LOW WATER USE, resistance to winterkill, the additional characteristics of improved wear tolerance, aversion to drought, tolerance of short mowing heights, salt tolerance, and low vertical growth make it an ideal choice for sports turf, golf courses, and landscape applications.
