“Although described from India, I. quamoclit is native to the Americas and was cultivated extensively early on (Austin 2013). A early putative report of it along Tombigbee River, Alabama (Robin 1807: 409; Rafinesque 1817: 50), yields the possibility of it being native to Florida or quite likely an early introduction, as the nearby port area was the point of introduction of many other exotics.”
