June in SW Ks.: Purple blooming large bush plant

Stratford, TX(Zone 6b)

Hi -

Help with ID please! This bush/plant begins blooming in mid-late June and I am wondering what it is and how it takes to transplanting? I am looking for an attractive native plant to place around my mailbox, along a highway, in full sun and poor soil, and this is growing on our property in rural, extreme SW Kansas. I've seen a few others on the Cimaron National Grasslands, and they are just pretty plants and large too.

Also, is it easy to propagate and if so, how? Will it come true from seed?

Thanks - Angie

Pic 2 close up of flowers - large, petunia-looking flowers.

Sorry for the poor-looking quality - took with my cell phone on way to work this am - will try to get some better soon, but I also need to mention the blooms are closed up by late evening when I get home from work.

Solved - it is a Bush Morning Glory.

It doesn't look like my mg bush. I'd post it on the i.d. forum and see if anyone else has any idea what it is.

Yes, I think it is a Bush Morning Glory
