Grapeleaf was a vine related to the honeysuckle, originally native to temperate forests but later widely cultivated as a herb and ornamental. As suggested by its name, its leaves were shaped like those of wild grapes, but its silver-white flowers were almost identical to those of honeysuckle. The flowers gained a rich, sweet, dreamy odor from their intoxicating nectar, which when ingested in fairly large quantities (i.e. a half-ounce dose) caused intoxication and dreams for two hours and also served as one day's nutrition. Grapeleaf was also used in cooking, perfumes, and beekeeping and was an ingredient of the beornings red Mead.
