The fact is Common Centipede has weaker growth characteristics than TifBlair, particularly in less than ideal soils and colder climates. Certified TifBlair is the product of over 25 years of genetic engineering by the University of Georgia Coastal Plains Experiment Station specifically designed to overcome these problems.
Research has shown, TifBlair has exceptional cold tolerance, increased fall color retention, and developes a deep rooting system even in poor growing condition. Additionally, TifBlair can only be sold by a select group of licensed Certified producers in each state.
