Canyon Grape

Natural History

Canyon Grape is a member of the Grape Family. It is a creeping vine with tendrils that often fully cover rocks or trees. It has dark green heart shaped leaves with toothed margins that grow to 6 inches in length. The plant typically grows along streams and in canyons at elevations between 2000-7500 feet.

The grapes of this plant can be used and eaten just like the cultivated variety and are a favorite of birds.

Canyon Grape typically blooms between April - July and produces small greenish-white flowers followed by a cluster of small grapes.
