Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon) does best when planted at temperatures of 75 degrees Fahrenheit and above. This is a tropical grass type that dies off at temperatures around 26 degrees Fahrenheit. The above-ground parts die back at freezing temperatures, but the grass sprouts from surviving roots in the spring.
