A slender trailing or climbing plant (reaching 20-30 ft. in height, with very long and slender branches, the young growth angled and floccose (sometimes glabrous), the diaphragms plane and rather thin: lvs. small and thin (rarely reaching 4 in. in width and generally from 2-3 in. high), cordate-ovate to triangular-ovate, with the basal sinus ranging from nearly truncate oblique to normally inverted U-shaped, rather dark green but glossy above and grayish green below, when young more or less pubescent or even arachnoid below, the blade either prominently notched on either upper margin or almost lobed, the point acute and often prolonged, margins irregularly notched with smaller teeth than in V. rupestris: clusters short and broad, much branched: berries medium or small (averaging about 1/2 in. diam.), black or light-colored, seedy, sweet; seeds large (about 1/4 in. long) and broad.
