Abstract

Spontaneous mutation: In 1996, vegetative material (later designated ‘TL2’) taken from a disease resistant mutant plant on the fifteenth green at Novotel Palm Cove resort course near Cairns was included an on-going program of selection and testing of promising ‘Tifgreen’ mutants by Tropical Lawns Pty Ltd. Selection criteria: healthy vigorous growth during the tropical wet season, dense fine-textured appearance under close mowing, and dark green leaves. In subsequent trials, ‘TL2’ was identified as the outstanding plant among selections of mutant ‘Tifgreen’ genotypes from other north Queensland sites in terms of colour, texture and density for greens use. Propagation: vegetative. Breeder: Terry Anderlini, Gordonvale, QLD. PBR Certificate Number 2639, Application Number 2002/268, granted 24 February 2005.
