Very telling photo. Purple in nature is always so gorgeous. I'm constantly commenting on how much purple there is out there. I love it, too!! Stop by for my give-away. I think it's something you might enjoy! ~karen

I saw these purple blooms everywhere in Maine and thought they were lavender but they don't have any scent/fragrance. Now I know it's Russian sage. Thanks for the info.
