Mystery Woman in Red – Salvia or Other?

Mystery Woman in Red – Salvia or Other?

So here she is, a picture taken fairly late in the season, but you’ll get the idea. She gets to be about two to three foot tall, in a sparse, woody way. She grows out of wet rocks and cliffsides mostly. Earlier in the season she was absolutely covered in flowers but she’s dying back now. The flowers look a pit pink in the pictures but earlier in the season they were brilliant scarlet red, and the leaves are a slightly bluish green. Square stems, HIGHLY aromatic with a minty, sagey euphoric kind of scent. Note the very narrow leaves, and somewhat un-Salvia like calyx. Astringent, nervine, wound healing, diaphoretic are the most noticeable effects just yet. Sounds very Sage like, yes? Help! Please assist me in IDing this amazing woman in...
