scarlet climber, Ipomoea x multifida

Scarlet climber is a hybrid of red morning-glory (I. coccinea) and cypress-vine (I. quamoclit). The divided leaves and plentiful red flowers make this popular with gardeners and hummingbirds. It has sparingly escaped from gardens, reported only from FL, MI, and TX. Beal Gardens, MSU, 9/6/12. Bindweed family, Convolvulaceae.
