Ipomoea X multifida is a hybrid of garden origin between cypress-vine (Ipomoea quamoclit) and the related Scarlet Morning-glory (Ipomoea hederifolia). Use Cardinal climber to cover a trellis in a hurry. The lacy leaves and brilliant red flowers make a screen that you'd rather look at than through. Cardinal climber is an excellent source of nectar for butterflies and hummingbirds. Light: Full sun to partial shade. Moisture: Needs well-drained soil. Tolerates drought, but grows best and produces the most flowers if well-watered. Propagation: By seeds. Cardinal climber will self-sow from seeds that remain in the ground over winter.
