Cultivated plant seen in Los Angeles on 3/10/14.
This is the only picture I have,
Flower shape indicates it is Salvia, Looks like Climber/twiner? I donot know whether in Labiates Climbers are reported, But the Salvia is one of the largest genera, with about 900 spp., mainly found in S America.
Could be Salvia greggii ‘Furman’s Red’, common name Furman’s Red Autumn Sage with smaller leaves and bright red flowers.
This is just a guess.
Experts kindly validate.
