    Default Flower Identifying help???

    A little help kind people....

    After a visit to Stratford last weekend...and after seeing the new gardens near the lock i spotted some lovely flowers..but i cant identify them....so....

    They are tall (3ft)
    look like lavender
    smell like lavender/ rosemary
    purple flowers
    blue/ green stems

    I've the name German Sage in my head...but not sure.

    Anyone live there? or any ideas?

    cheers
