Other info. - This small grape can be found in the Ozark region of Missouri. The plant is probably the easiest of the Missouri grapes to ID because of its habitat, creeping stems, and broad leaves. The plant is usually about 1m tall or less but it can get taller. V. rupestris can be quite abundant on undisturbed gravel bars along Ozark rivers and streams.
