Sweet Nature has added this one to the natural beautifying of the yard. It coexists nicely with the morning-glory, but the flowers are much smaller, and they bloom through the whole day. I haven't been able to id it from my books. Any id help is highly appreciated.
See "all sizes" and choose the 2048 resolution to see the pollen details!

I think it is a Morning Glory hybrid. I can make out the shape of the bud behind it and the flower shape and bud shape are identical to mine.. which are a different colour !

There are some gorgeous hybrids now !

Stunning photo !

Thanks so much, you are right. I've been looking around online and found that it's likely to be (Ipomoea coccinea) Small Red Morning Glory, also known as Redstar.
The flowers are smaller than the normal morning glory, around 15mm wide. I love this new addition to the flora in the yard, especially since it has a lot of flowers that stay open all day and attracts both hummingbirds and butterflies.
