Torpedo Grass or Common Bermuda

Post by bhutchinson87 »

For the longest time I thought I had common bermuda mixed in with my hybrid, and I acquiesced that this was my life. Then I came across engineear's thread and it had my hopes up. Is this torpedo grass?

That's not common bermuda. It does look like it could be torpedo, but not positive.

I dug around some more today and followed it deeper, and pulled these white tube things out. Does Common Bermuda have white underground runners like this? Or is it safe to say it’s torpedo?
