Celebration Hybrid™ Bermudagrass was released from Mississippi State University in September 2022. Celebration Hybrid is an improved variety resulting from crosses of Celebration® Bermudagrass. Celebration Hybrid features top-tier drought tolerance in the National Turfgrass Evaluation bermudagrass trials but also adds many other improved features that may make this the best overall bermuda on the market. It showcases a finer texture and better shade tolerance than its predecessor Celebration with fewer seed heads and with less thatch. It also has a better cold tolerance, performing well deep into the transition zone. It was trialed at golf course sites across the Southeast United States where it was favored by superintendents.
