Common unhulled Bermudagrass

Common Unhulled


A vigorous, warm season grass which spreads by creeping stolons as well as rhizomes. It is a very prominant grass throughout the southwest. Common bermuda exhibits medium texture and has a more open turf than improved varieties. The ‘Unhulled’ form means that the hull or sheath on the seed has not been removed. This results in slightly increased germination time. Although bermuda should be planted in warm weather the unhulled form can be planted in cooler weather and will become established later.
