Bermuda Grass is often grown as a turfgrass in the Triangle and throughout North and South Carolina. However, many homeowners think of it as an eye sore and aggressive weed in their desired turf. It was introduced into the USA in 1751 from Africa and not Bermuda, as you might have expected.

Bermuda is a serious problem in cool-season turfgrass mainly because it turns an undesirable brown color in cool season turf during the winter. Bermuda in the Transitional Zone will be dormant (brown) from September to May. Bermuda, like all warm season grass, crawls into landscape beds, to or from adjoining lawns and will crawl over sidewalks and driveways. Being a warm season grass, Bermuda is very aggressive during the summer. It spreads using a system of horizontal underground stems (rhizomes) and above ground horizontal stems (stolons) and to a lesser degree, by seed.
