A durable yet beautiful choice, Tifway 419 Bermuda Grass is well suited for fine lawns, fairways and golf tee areas. Tifway 419 is an F-1 Hybrid released in 1960 by Georgia Coastal Plain Experiment Station and the plant science research division of ARS.
It is characterized as having a dark green color with medium fine textured leaves. Due to its high tolerance to disease, it maintains the desirable green color longer and with less nitrogen than most other selections. Tifway 419 has greater frost resistance, allowing for greener lawns later into fall. The benefits of Tifway 419 also include earlier spring growth, greater sod webworm and mole cricket resistance, better herbicide tolerance and stiffer leaf blades than Tiffine or Tifgreen.
