mine has light lavender leaves, i identified as ipomea carnea fistulosa. i have heard of a sister pink. they start rooting as soon as you clip them, and some of mine grew 8 feet in maybe 2 months. love this plant.

I have to think hard here, but there is another type of bush morning glory and I don't think it is an Ipomea. It is Cnereum or something like that. I got seeds from a lady from Texas a few years ago. I traded it off to someone in a warmer zone at summers end. The flowers are peach if I remember correctly. Let me see if I can find the name and get back to you.

The one I was thinking of is Convulvulus cneorum. Here is one link http://www.liddlewonder.co.nz/PlantGallery/ConvolvulusCneorum/index.htm
I can't seem to find anything on the ones with other color blooms. The ones I had were either peach or pink and faded to another color, or another color and faded to peach or pink. LOL Anyway, don't know if this helps but I am out of time. :)

Poppy sue, last link is like mine. they grow really fast and root in a heart beat. would probably be good as an annual grown up north, they grow so fast.

Are you trading any of your seeds of this plant or cuttings?

Newberry, FL(Zone 8B)

I have seen seeds posted on other sites, guess they make seeds. a kind lady sent me some, but i already passed them on when i saw how easily they root. easiest thing i have ever seen. i have seen the pink ones being traded, not in person, don't know anything about them.
