Pulling up my evasive growth of creeping cucumber and I found the flower in these photos. It’s a separate vine from the Little yellow flower vine but has the same vine and leaves. The books say that the female is a trumpet flower but I can find no mention of the bright orange color. Is it a creepy lady cucumber flower dressed in orange or something else? Anybody know?

    tonili apparently the cardinal climber has a different leaf than many of the other morning glories. Looks like the Ipomoea x multifida leaf is deeply lobed. Interestingly it is a cross between the cypress vine, another morning glory variety, and ipomoea coccinea. Splitting hairs but, definitely a morning glory.

    its a cardinal climber I sometimes mix them up with the cypress vine and I have to see the foliage. I did both this year and the cypress vine is dainty and precise. It is definitely not a morning glory.

    I believe its a cardinal climber. Just planted my first seeds this spring from a packet and the took forever to bloom, August when they flowered but now I have seeds galore!

    Stone “Red Morning Glory” That is it. Strange that it grew in with the creeping cucumber and looks so much the same — except for the flower. Thanx for you identification. Thanx to others that offered their possibilities as well. This site is fun. Wildflower Man

    A great hummingbird vine… I agree with the ipomoea coccinea id, but the Dave’s Garden website wouldn’t be my first choice for info… Maybe this link will be more helpful… If you compare with Ipomoea hederifolia, you may find that it matches better.

    Bobby, Close but leaves not quite right. The one I have is very small flower that is 1.125″ long and has a diameter at the flower of .375″ with leaves and creeping stem identical to the creeping cucumber that grows all around it… What size is the Orange Morning Glory?
