Vid Americana

Name for the grape species Vitis riparia; look there.

One of the approximately 30 American species or Wild vines with full botanical name Vitis riparia Michx. It was first created by the French botanist André Michaux (1746-1802) described and cataloged in 1802, which is why it is immortalized in the botanical name. Together with the two species Vitis acerifolia and Vitis rupestris it forms the group Ripariae. Trivial synonyms include Bermuda Wine, Duftrebe, Frost Grape , Riverbank Grape, Uferrebe, Vid Americana and Videira Americana. Vitis riparia is the most widespread type of wild grape in North America and comes mainly in the south Canada, as well as in the vast majority of US states except the southernmost.
