Common name:  Roger’s Red Grape

Special notes:  A vigorous deciduous climber known for its spectacular fall color.  Roger Raiche discovered it in Sonoma County.  Though it is now known to be a hybrid between our native grape and wine grape, it settles happily into a native garden.  Grapes are seedy but edible and attractive to wildlife; make good jelly!
