Usually grown as an annual I think.

Morning glory vines are annual. Is the bush a different plant?

Both Ipomoea leptophylla (purple) and Ipomoea carnea pink) are tender perennials that are used as annuals in colder areas.

I have the pink one (carnea) and it is perennial here for me. I guess it will depend upon how cold it gets in winter for you, as you're probably just on the borderline of its hardiness.

If this one has died, and you grow another this summer, try just mulching it really heavily before the cold weather arrives. That might make the difference for it to survive.

I have MG bush/tree...one is planted on a furbaby's grave. It has come back for me several years now...some years better then others. Mostly I have them in pots that I over winter in my GH. They are really easy to root...just cut them in the fall and stick in water. Before long they will have roots.
