Identify Purple Flower

Lexington, NC(Zone 7a)

We live in the independent portion of an assisted living complex. Just out side the assisted living portion is a flower garden. One of them is a purple plant with a small rose colored flower on it. I took a picture of the plant in late afternoon and the small rose flower had closed up. I hope some one can identify the plant.
