Does anyone know the name of this flower? Thank you




Looks like Cardinal Climber Vine. It's related to Morning Glory. I tried growing this one year but wasn't particularity thrilled with it - tiny flowers, started looking mangy after a while. I switched over to Coral Honeysuckle - large red clusters of red trumpets, mildly fragrant, brings in the hummingbirds, evergreen, neat tidy growth habit, minimal care.

Thank you so much for the information. I'll look for a Coral Honeysuckle!!

They are easy to find and easy to grow. Does well in full sun or partial sun - more sun=more flowers.

Now if this query had been from someone in Britain I would have said it looks remarkably like a herbaceous Potentilla Gibson's Scarlet.

Thank you for the additional info on the Coral Honeysuckle. Thank you also to Owdboggy!

Going by the leaf shape and flower shape I'd go for Potentilla, I have Gibson's scarlet and Flamenco and they are just like this.

this does not appear to be a climber.

Spritzhenry has a photo on here of one called Monarch's Velvet which is that dark red colour.
