What do the leaves look like? My first thought was also Cypress Vine (Ipomoea quamoclit)



If leaves are large, heart shaped, it could be Red Morning Glory (Ipomoea coccinea)

What is the difference between the multifida species & sloteri species?
Cardinal Climber (Ipomoea sloteri)

Some of the pics in sloteri entry do not look like they belong there.

Yes, I noticed a couple that don't seem to belong, looks like we'll need to check it out further, I'm not familiar with these at all.

There's a leaf visible if you enlarge the picture: it looks like the leaf of Cardinal Climber; not heart shaped and not very finely cut. According to the Catalogue of Life, which I've the noticed being used as a tool by the moderators here, the latin for Cardinal climber is Ipomoea multifida (syn. Quamoclit multifida). A search for I. sloteri or I. x multifida returns no results.

Yes, the leaf is what let me know it was not I. quamoclit. Assuming you meant that your searching was done on COL, if you didn't find I. sloteri, then it shouldn't be an entry in the database here. It seems like they are the same plant, I. sloteri & multifida from the amalgam of pics I've seen, but having not observed either in person except by the most brief glimpses, I'm not in a position to gauge that at all. That is why I asked what the difference would be. These distinct leaves, and the small, typical Ipomoea blooms look the same to me:



But maybe there is another feature one could observe to see the difference, if there is one.

This is a post made by a member of Dave's Garden:

"The hybrid between I. quamoclit and I. coccinea is I. x multifida. I. sloteri is a new species resulting from a chromosome doubling in I. multifida. (It is an allotetraploid.) So I. x multifida and I. sloteri are not synonyms---they are genetically distinct taxa."

Is it true? I have no idea.

Ipomoea × sloteri is what the name should look like in the database. That also why it isn't in CoL I believe. edited to add that the above photo submitted by vic is from Outside Pride and it's labeled I. quamoclit on their site.

I'm still not sure what it is. I think it's pretty but not sure if I will plant it again.

Thanks for your and everyone else that helped.

My pleasure.

I remain confused though. Although 2 plants are identical in appearance, a genetic test indicates they're separate species? Or is 1 pic in the wrong spot?
