In your part of the world some unusual natural hybrids have been found.
What you describe might just be one. The marks suggest Vitis
aestivalis, but it could be crossed with something else. You should
save the vine and at least let it bloom to see if it has any potential.

OK guys, I'm asking for your wide range of experience here. Lon would
be best except he's not in the East. There are wild grapes here,
muscadines with little leaves and smooth vines, and what I assume are
fox grapes with bigger leaves and shreddy bark. But I have found a new
kind of grapevine where we've cut some trees out. It has huge leaves
and weird mottled hairy stems. I've never seen this kind before. The
stems have reddish marks on them. I suppose we might have cut the vine
and it came out really big and vigorous with extra large leaves in the
rain this year. But it's still different from any wild grape I have
ever seen. Any ideas? Donna
