Ipomoea x multifida is a hybrid vine that is a cross between two species within the Ipomoea genus, typically Ipomoea lobata (Spanish flag) and Ipomoea quamoclit (cypress vine). This hybrid is often referred to as "cardinal climber" or "red morning glory."

Like its parent species, Ipomoea x multifida is prized for its fast growth, attractive foliage, and stunning flowers. The leaves are typically palmate and deeply lobed, resembling a hand with outspread fingers. The foliage provides a lush backdrop for the vibrant red trumpet-shaped flowers that adorn the vine.

Ipomoea x multifida is a vigorous grower, capable of reaching lengths of up to 10 feet or more under favorable conditions. It thrives in full sun and well-drained soil, making it a popular choice for trellises, fences, or arbors in garden landscapes.

The flowers of Ipomoea x multifida are highly attractive to pollinators, particularly hummingbirds and butterflies, adding to its appeal in the garden. They are produced in clusters along the length of the vine and provide a striking contrast against the rich green foliage.
