Bermudagrass (PremierPRO Brand) Variety Description
Plant Patent Protected
is a unique variety of bermudagrass that was discovered under cultivated
conditions in a golf course fairway near Seal
Beach, California. It was identified in the field as having a
darker green leaf color than its suspected parent, Tifgreen. Premier was propagated by the inventors under
field and greenhouse conditions in Parker, Texas by cutting of rhizomes and stolons,
rooting them in soil, and planting of the rooted material to provide planting
stock for studying performance.
Asexually reproduced plants have remained stable and true to type through
successive generations of propagation. It is a perennial bermudagrass that
spreads by both stolons and rhizomes.
Premier has not shown any susceptibility in tests to date to the
diseases and insects common to the bermudagrass genus. It will be limited only by winter survival in
colder regions, and is undergoing further research to determine the most
northern area of survival at this time.
