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!!!
