In Maryland Allegheny Vine is a state threatened species that can be found in the Ridge and Valley and Allegheny Plateau provinces. This species used to be found in Baltimore County but is now considered extirpated from that area. MD DNR says, "This species reaches highest density in open-canopy habitats and thus faces increased competition with invasive species. Habitat: Rocky woodlands, cliffs and outcrops over mafic to slightly acidic siltstones, sandstones and shales, and sometimes found growing—strikingly—in small amounts of organic soil on the tops of boulders."

There are 39 records in the project database.
