Riverbank Grape ~ Vitis riparia / ATTRACTS: Squirrels.  IMMENSELY VALUABLE TO WILDLIFE!  Attracts 100 species of birds, alot of mammals (including Raccoons).  Leaves with quinch thirst.  Needs a support to grow on. Loves to be planted by a water source, such as a stream.  WILL OVERTAKE TREES OR SHRUBS NEARBY, PLANT IN A SECLUDED AREA.  Suffers seriously from late Spring freeze, which can eliminate the Grape crop which is a  significant loss to wildlife!!!
