Is this a greens Bermuda?

I found this growing in my mother in laws flower bed this weekend. The nodes are less than 1/2 cm apart. Her yard is Tifway. I wonder if some Tifgreen snuck in with the sod back when they put the yard in.

Need something of scale in the picture. Blades look to big for Bermuda, and Bermuda will have multiple blades at each node.

The purple stolon and striped leaf looks a bit like Saint Augustine

RE: Is this a greens Bermuda?

Sorry about no scale, TW. The stolon is actually very tiny. I just got very close to it with the camera. I would say the internode length is around 4 mm.

RE: Is this a greens Bermuda?

John what is bothering me is the number of leaves at each node.

RE: Is this a greens Bermuda?

Gotcha, TW. I'd never seen anything quite like it.
