The grapes are tasty for people and wildlife. Vitis girdiana is is a great bird plant, for western bluebirds, California Thrashers and other berry eating birds of summer. We have one that is espaliered against a wall here. It is easy! Use Desert Grape on a shade structures like an arbor or a pergola for a cool shady retreat in a summer garden.
