Roger's Red Grape

A handsome winter deciduous grape which produces bright red leaves in the late Fall.  Recent evaluation using DNA fingerprint technology has revealed that Vitus cv. Roger's Red is actually a hybrid between the Wild California Grape (Vitus californica) and a Wine Grape (Vitus vinifera cv. Alicante Bouschet) which accounts for the bright red foliage prior to leaf drop.  Photos by Laurel Woodley
