I found this plant this weekend in Carrol County Arkansas near the town of Beaver on the tailwaters of Table Rock Lake. It only had couple of blooms but I found lots of seed and gathered some to sow in my hummingbird garden next spring.
It is beautiful, and I saw it growing wild in a ditch area next to the EV Smith Res. Ctr. Beef Unit. My colleague said that hummingbirds love it. I suspect it could become a menace in the ideal shrub/flowerbed with mulch, just like the other morning glory species. Cypressvine also does well here, and reseeds well; there are a group of vines growing year after year up rocks next to the railroad tracks on Hwy 14. I would not grow either vine next to farmer's fields, especially peanut and cotton.

It is a struggle for me to keep this plant from overtaking anything in my yard that it can climb, but I will still give it a positive rating because it, along with Ipomoea quamaclit (Cypress Vine) have attracted hummingbirds to my yard. I saw the first hummers this summer and they have been exclusively feeding at the trellis with these red flowering vines. I thought I had eliminated most of this vine when I saw it sprouting this year, but it only takes one or two vines to spread quickly, flower, and leave lots of seeds for next season, often far away from the original plant.
I begin to see them sprouting by self-seeding around March or April here in NE Florida and they are 6 to 10 ft tall and blooming by June. If anyone wants a seedling early some year, send me an E-mail around March or April and I'll send one or more of the plants to you if you pay the postage. With an early enough start, they should grow and bloom for you in most climates and you should be able to gather and store seeds for future years if you are in cold climates, or just stand back and watch them take over in the sub-tropics/tropics.

I acquired seeds for this plant several years ago in a trade on a garden site. The leaves cover chain link fence really well. The plant flowers near the end of the vine so you have leaves covering the fence and loads of orange toppling over the top of it where hummers can easily and do visit often.

Reseeds with abandon and covers my front porch railing every year.
The plants that volunteer are a bit late to get started, as they are on a spot that is in the shade most of the day, but even on the East side, under an overhang, I have a lovely show until frost...and beyond, if it isn't too cold, due to the protective overhang.

After much talk with a friend I realised we have had this vine for many years- It grows all over our yard. Self seeds rampantly and the birds love it. Butterflies and hummingbirds are attracted to this one like mad. A good staple for any wild gardens- or anywhere you want hummers and butterflies. Does well in hot dry climates.

This will be my first year to grow this M.G. it is about 5 weeks old now in a small pot under a H.P.S. grow light.
I loved the pic's i saw of this M.G. and had to add it to my collection.
I think I will Enjoy this Vine.
Red Morning Glory mixed with the beautiful cypress vine.
I found this growing wild in one place only, in my area. So I waited and watched till I saw seed pods.
I can't seem to find it anywhere on the web. To properly identify it. So any help is welcomed. It grows just like any other Morning Glory. And is just beautiful. You should see the butterflies they attract. I have harvested some seed for next year. And plan to scatter them around so more people can enjoy them.

I planted seeds outdoors after the frost-free date here--Memorial Day weekend. Even though I soaked the seed, not one sprouted. We have had an unusually cool wet summer here in the Catskills. I am guessing that this cultivar just needs warmer weather than we've had.

Yesterday I saw this beautiful little wildflower growing near a bridge over the Steinhatchee River, in Dixie County, Florida, just a few miles from the Gulf of Mexico. It was growing along the side of a dirt road at the approach to an old wooden bridge, in almost pure sand. The flowers were much smaller than regular morning glories, but the leaves were rather large and deep green, perhaps due to a lot of recent rain. The intense color of the small flowers really caught your eye, and there were lots of Cloudless Giant Sulphur and Zebra Longwing butterflies fluttering all among the plants, landing on the tips of the flowers for nectar. Unfortunately none of the little green seed pods were ripe enough to collect.

Known as ORANGE NOAH or WILD RED Morning Glory, this is an unusual version of the popular flowering vine. Not as showy but just as intense a reseeder.
