Mexican Flame Vine (Pseudogynoxys chenopodioides aka Senecio confusus). I love this bloomin' vine:)

:) @LIcenter the vine is native to Mexico's El Tejin region in the state of Veracruz. It has become popular with gardeners in the US who live in usda zone 9 and up. It is super rich in nectar and pollen and attracts all kinds of pollinators and nectar lovers. Generally, the vine is covered with butterflies, hummingbirds, bees, and everything else. The photo was taken in the morning before the butterflies become active.

The purple clematis are always the first to bloom in my yard in May/June. Generally, the vine is "trainable" on any wall or lattice, and this one really took off this year with all the rain we had the spring. Unfortunately, the same precipitation that helps it blossom causes the blooms to fall (especially in a driving rainstorm).
