    I'm looking for a wild grape that only grows in these 2 states although the usda maps are old and it may have expanded some.

    It's called the caloose grape or calusa grape aka vitis shuttleworthii.

    I'm attaching a couple pics but easiest way to tell is the bright white backs to the leaves.

    If you happen to spot any, send me a message or let me know on here.

    Thx.

    I guess not. There is one grap[e that will grow in Florida other than the Muscadine and I understand it makes a good wine - but I cannot recall what it is at this time.

    I did find a nursery that sells it but just waiting to hear back from them to see if they will ship?

    Most likely a no but worth a try.
