Answer: Antigonon leptopus is called coral vine or Queen's wreath. It's native to Mexico and will grow where summers are long and hot. Arizona and the deserts of southern California are good growing spots, but your gardening region won't provide the heat it requires for best performance. If you are able to find a plant locally, (and you may not be able to since it won't perform well) you can plant it against a south or west wall where heat will be reflected and it might be happy. Antigonon is a vining plant, grows to 40', and needs a supporting structure such as a trellis or gazebo. If it's happy, it will produces sprays of white, pink, or red flowers.
