Vitis amurensis

One of about 30 Asian species or wild vines with complete botanical name Vitis amurensis Rupr. It was first described in 1857 by the Austrian botanist Franz Josef Ruprecht (1814-1870), which is also included in the name. Botanical synonyms or old names are Vitis vinifera var. amurensis Regel, because the German botanist Eduard A. Regel (1815-1892) considered it to be a Vitis vinifera variety, and Vitis thunbergii. The vine is widespread in the temperate regions of China and Russia as far as Korea and Japan. It owes its name Amur vine to its origin in the Amur river valley, which forms the Russian-Chinese border for over 2,000 kilometres. It grows mainly in the valleys of rivers and streams as well as in forests, where it also climbs up trees.
