Tifway 419 is an improved hybrid Bermuda developed from the famed Tifton, Georgia turf‑breeding program. It has a dark green color and low growth habit. Tifway 419 is used for many applications, but it is best known in the South for its use on golf courses and sports fields. It is also the most widely used Bermuda grass in Texas. This variety is dense, has excellent wear resistance, and is able to quickly recover from damage. It has poor shade tolerance.
