Does anyone have any idea what this is? South Texas, San Antonio area. I thought it was a sage but the leaves aren't quiet the same as my scarlet sage or pineapple?
Sure looks like a Salvia (the scientific term for sage). You might look at the species found to occur in Texas.

Pretty sure it's cedar sage.....looks like it may even been growing under juniper/"cedar".

Thanks so much. Looked it up and that's what it is. Does it only grow in certain places?
Common name is from its affinity for the shade of "cedar" trees. It's a good shade/understory plant. Ours is growing under a dwarf peach. The following NPSOT article provides more background.
