La Paloma Bermuda Grass Seed -  LaPaloma is a turf-type seeded bermudagrass that has proven to be a perfect choice for any high-end turf grass project, including golf tees, fairways and roughs, plus sports fields throughout the world. This high-quality, dark green, dense and fine textured seeded bermudagrass is a release from Dr. Leah Brilman, Research Director for Seed Research of Oregon.

Germplasm collected by Dr. Brilman, along with Dr. Jack Murray on older turf sites in Maryland, was screened over several years in Maryland, Florida and Oregon for turf quality, seed yield and cold tolerance characteristics. The early progeny from these original plants were tested for turfgrass quality ratings at several university and commercial turfgrass sites in Texas and Arizona, with high ratings from independent turfgrass researchers.

Characteristics & Advantages
LaPaloma exhibits finer leaf texture than most seeded bermudagrass varieties available. In certain trials, it is comparable for overall turf quality to Yukon, Princess, and Riviera. LaPaloma has improved cold tolerance, and has shown better persistence under low light conditions caused by overcast, cloudy conditions, or shade from trees and structures.

LaPaloma exhibits short plant height – a distinguishing characteristic among available seed propagated varieties. It is noted for good stolon length, for rapid cover and filling on planting sites – important for earlier opening and use of planted projects. LaPaloma is ideally suited as a straight variety, or as a component in a certified blend, such as LaPrima. It can be seeded into new turfgrass projects, or interseeded into existing seeded or vegetative bermuda to improve the overall quality of a turfgrass site.
