Not native to Florida
Occasional wine of mainly disturbed sites throughout much of Florida. Native to Mexico, it now ranges throughout much of the southeast, north into Ontario, west to Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas, plus Califormina, Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.
The small scarlet-red flowers bloom from summer through late fall. The stamens and pistil extend beyond the long, narrow corolla tube. The alternate leaves are pinnately divided nearly to the midrib into linear segments, appearing feathery. The stem is smooth and twining.
