Can anyone help identify this climbing vine with purple flowers in our backyard? It was there when we moved in, and started blooming when it got nice out (and we gave it a little water).
Someone said it might be a Rose of Sharon, but I looked at some pictures and I'm not convinced.
We love the look of it, and would like to get a matching one for the other side of the trellis, or maybe get a cutting to grow it elsewhere too. Is this a good idea?
Here is a close-up shot of a flower:
