Need help IDing a plant

Actually it may be 2 plants. But they are similar other than color. When I bought them they had a label that said 'Russian Sage', but I am pretty sure that they are something else. One has purpley blue flowers and is about 18 inches tall, the other has white flowers and is a bit shorter.

I forgot to add that it is perennial and hardy to at least Zone 3.

I believe the plant in the last picture is Limonium sinuatum.

Here is a link that might be useful: German statice

I don't think it's L. sinuatum - that has lobed leaves and much more compact flower heads. It is also not reliably hardy to zone 3 (it could be if you have it in a good microclimate though).

Pudge 2b

The first is Limonium latifolium, aka Sea Lavender.

The second is Limonium tartaricum, aka German Statice.

Just to be geeky, L. tataricum, has now been transferred to the separate genus Goniolimon.

Thought you would like to know that Pudge ;)

Thanks Pudge. I had looked them up and that was kind of what I was leaning towards.

You're welcome, randiliana. They both make nice dried material, too.

Sharon, I had no idea Limonium tartaricum had been renamed. Thanks for the info.
