Vitis cinerea, Engelm. Sweet Winter Grape. Fig. 3961. Climbing high, with medium to long internodes and thick and strong diaphragms: lvs. large, broadly cordate-ovate to triangular-cordate-ovate (generally longer than broad), the sinus mostly wide and obtuse, the margin small-notched (teeth much smaller than in V. Berlandieri) or sometimes almost entire, mostly distinctly and divaricately 3-angled or shortly 3-lobed toward the apex, the triangular apex large and prominent, the upper surface cobwebby when young but becoming dull dark green (not glossy), the under surface remaining ash-gray or dun-gray, webby-pubescent: stamens in sterile fls. long, slender, and ascending, in the fertile ones short and laterally recurved: cluster mostly loose and often straggling, containing many small black berries, these only slightly, if at all glaucous, ripening very late, and after frost becoming sweet and pleasant; seeds small to medium. Along streams, mostly in limy soils, Cent. Ill. to Kans. and Texas; also N. Fla., also in Mex.—Readily distinguished from V. aestivalis by the triangular-topped sharply 3-lobed ash-gray lvs. and the gray tomentum of the young growth.

Var. floridana, Munson (V. austrina, Small). Growing tips rusty-tomentose, as are sometimes the veins on the under sides of the lvs.: cluster longer-peduncled and more compound. Manatee Co., Fla.; and apparently also in Ark.; possibly a compound with V. aestivalis, but the lvs. have the characteristic shape of V. cinerea. Not to be confounded with any form of V. caribaea, because of the lobed triangular-topped lvs. and much larger teeth.

Var. canescens, Bailey. A form with rounded or heart-like lvs., the upper half of the lf. lacking the triangular and 3-lobed shape of the type. St. Louis, Mo., and S. Ill. to Texas.
