|Tifdwarf Tees and Tifway 419 Fairways|
Tifdwarf was selected and released in 1965 by the Georgia Coastal Plain Experiment Station in cooperation with Plant Science Research Division of ARS. It is believed to be a natural dwarf mutant that occurred in Tifgreen while being tested at the Georgia Coastal Plain Experiment Station. Tifdwarf is darker green, has smaller leaves and stems and shorter internodes than Tifgreen. It tolerates closer mowing and makes a better putting surface than Tifgreen but otherwise is similar to Tifgreen. Tifdwarf is used on golf greens and tees, croquet courts, lawn bowling, and for very fine, closely mowed lawns.
