Flowersred red flower with feathery leaves

Do any of you recognize this flower? It came up in an area I had sprinkled with a bunch of seed mixes before I got on my all native craze, and it may be horticultural. I can't find the packets to look up what was in them. It is quite lovely, the flowers look like my red salvia but the leaves look like cosmos.

I can't for the life of me think of its name.

If it's the one I'm thinking of, It's a biennial and can grow any where from about a foot in height up to 4' depending upon conditions...
The first years growth is a featherylike stem the second year it bears flowers, seeds and then dies.

Took me a while to put the pieces together...
For some reason I couldn't get past thinking cyprus spurge ..but I knew THAT wasn't right. That would have been a euphorbia.
Then I recalled the fancy name started with Ipo something or other. Hmmmm Ipomoea Nooooo that's a morning glory.
Looking through a few files I finally came up with the Ipomopsis name but once I saw how many varieties there were I figured I'd best leave it at that.
So, you are correct.... Ipomopsis rubra/standing-cypress would be the family I was thinking of.

I had that in my balcony this year, but I don't remember what it is, of course...

Thanks, guys. It probably is the Cyprus. My only qualm about the id is that is says this grows to six feet. Mine was only one, and flowered the first year. It sure looks like the photo though.
