Q. Identifying a plant

We are in zone 8b, and there is a thick stemmed shrub/perennial? here that the local folks call “One Drop of Jesus’ Blood.” It grows about 7 feet tall, looks “viney” in the summer and fall and is covered in small bright red flowers about the size of a thumbnail. I cut it back in the winter and the ground is covered in seedling babies. Any help is much appreciated!
