My wife has seen a plant while on her walk and was wondering what it is. She wants to plant them in our yard, but doesn't seem to find them in books we have. Does anyone know the name of them, common or otherwise? It's the one with the purple flowers in the pics. Sorry for the quality of the image...i had a heck of a time reducing the pics from mega-size to the required size for posting.

TIA to anyone who can shed light on this.

Looks like lavender to me. Does it smell like lavender?

I concur. It is definitely lavender.

Well...............I do believe you both are correct-o! I told her that it was lavender and she commented that she wasn't aware of any of the aroma that we would have expected from that plant. Maybe it was a bad day for her "sniffer", huh?

Thanks to both of you for your responses. I just KNEW we'd find an answer on this forum.

I concur, try smelling some dried flowers, that is when the smell is at its highest.

It may be Russian Sage which is often confused with lavender for looks, but lacks the scent. See also some images.
