Tifway II bermuda has the shortest winter dormancy of all hybrid bermudas, staying green longer into the fall and greening up earlier in the spring.  It is the best bermuda for coastal California.  With its great durability, beautiful dark-green color, and recuperative abilities, Tifway II is a top performer on golf courses and sports fields.  Like all our hybrid bermudas, Tifway II is a drought tolerant grass, and requires very little water compared to cool season grasses like fescue.
