Looks similar to 'Cameo Elegance.' Don't know if they're the same.

This is a very nice plant to use in hanging baskets. It is full of blooms from spring till summer. This one was done blooming by June or first of July. I like plants that grow longer and there are far too many other reds to choose from to limit myself to one that limits itself to growth. So if I want a red in the future I will choose Chimson rambler, Rose Red or another. But this is a good one if you have limited space and need a more compact vine.
