Heard it doesn't vine quite so much and is a lot easier to maintain... though grapes are small & seedy... anyone growing &/or selling hybrids? Love to get some cuttings!

Howdy Matt, welcome to permies. I don't have any. Hope you find some though. Do they grow wild?

Hi Miles,

Well, the Plants For A Future database says they grow in "Ravines and sandy shores[43]. Stream bottoms and rocky slopes in Texas, usually scrambling over rocks and shrubs[274]." ...and north to Colorado.

So yes, but not near me, in Philadelphia.
