Vitis arizonica, Engelm. (V. arizonensis, Parry). Canon Grape. Plant weak, much branched, with short internodes and thick diaphragms, branchlets angled: lvs. mostly small, cordate-ovate and with a prominent triangular-pointed apex, the sinus broad or the base of the blade even truncate, the teeth many and small and pointed or mucronate, the margin either continuous or very indistinctly 3-lobed (or sometimes prominently lobed on young growths), the lvs. and shoots white-woolly when young, but becoming nearly glabrous with age: stamens ascending in sterile fls. and recurved in the fertile ones: bunches small and compound, not greatly, if at all, exceeding the lvs., bearing 20-40 small black berries of pleasant taste; seeds 2-3, medium size. Along river banks, W. Texas to New Mex. and Ariz., mostly south of the 35th parallel, to S. E. Calif. and N. Mex.

Var. glabra, Munson. Plant glabrous, with glossy and mostly thinner and larger lvs. In mountain gulches, with the species and ranging northward into S. Utah. Distinguished from V. monticola by its triangular-pointed and small-toothed lvs. Perhaps a form of V. Treleasii.
