It is found in over 100 counties throughout the tropical and subtropical areas of the world. Common bermudagrass, C. dactylon, naturalized throughout the warmer regions of the United States, was introduced into this country during the colonial period from Africa or India. The earliest introductions are not recorded, but bermudagrass is listed as one of the principal grasses in the Southern States in Mease's Geological Account of the United States published in 1807.'camera Nikoncontributor's ID # 2005_05_04_JD_0092 photo category: Plant - annual/perennial
