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.

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.
