TifBlair Centipede

TifBlair Centipede offers more cold and drought tolerance than common Centipede. Tests conducted over three winters in Blairsville, GA and Stillwater, OK demonstrated that TifBlair can survive even severe winter temperatures. A deep root system allows TifBlair to grow in low pH soils as well. This low growing, warm season grass offers lower maintenance requirements, ideal for commercial and residential installations.
