Wild Grapes seen in the last week of June.
This was June end in 2017.
A lot of posts from that visit remain unidentified.
any more pictures of leaves where you can see some complete faces of some leaves?
No. These are the only pictures I have.
When you are on a tour, can hardly spend more time at a place.
i know that’s why they are good for personal memory only. i have at least TEN thousand of such pictures. when i get a moment i try to id them myself for my own file or satisfaction and my parents have/had even more. they used them often to draw and paint collages from the pictures. not every picture going to be identified
yours could be. classified as wild grapes. northern new york state.
good luck. sorry cant come up with a species name. too many cultivars that have escaped
forgot. Vitis spp.
Thanks … Not a problem. From the Vitis Species seen in that region, Vitis riparia (River Grape) leaves look close to my pictures. Just a guess.
Also, it was seen right next to the water, growing on rocks.
I guess Vitis riparia Michx. looks a close match
how would you prove or disprove that diagnosis
It is just a guess.
Thanks … The leaves in my pictures looked close to Vitis riparia, plus very close to water body and creeping habit on the rocks.
