Introducing Vitis californica, also known as California Wild Grape, a beautiful, deciduous vine native to most of California and southwestern Oregon. With its interesting shape and color, it is a popular ornamental plant in gardens and native plant gardens, where it thrives without the need for summer water. In the fall, the leaves turn many shades of orange and yellow, and small but edible purple grapes hang from the vines, providing an important food source for wild animals. It is also commonly used as rootstock for wine grapes due to its robust nature. The fruit can be eaten raw, cooked, or dried for winter use, and young leaves can be used as a pleasant-flavored wrap for foods. The woody parts of the vines have been used for basketry and rope-making, making it a versatile and valuable plant. With its ability to withstand periods of dry conditions, California Wild Grape is a hardy addition to any garden.
