SOLVED: mystery vine

Kyle, TX

An interesting vine is growing near a community garden in Hays County, Texas. It looks like it had old blooms and some buds about to flower in the fall. I could never catch it when the bloom was new. I collected seeds and have some started but I still don't know what it is. Can anyone help me identify it? It's a deciduous vine that blooms in late fall and one person, who couldn't remember the name of the vine, thinks it's a good native plant (not invasive).

I think you got it right! The alamo vine is seen a lot around here. I just never had one so didn't recognize it. Thank you so much!
