please ID Is this a salvia?
I apologize for the poor quality of the photo, however, I think it does show the bush well enough. I have several of these bushes on my property in central NM. I believe they are native to the area. The bushes are simply masses of silvery twigs, about three feet tall and equally as wide. They never have leaves. The bushes flower 2-3 times each summer with SWEET scented, tiny, deep purple flowers.
Thank you, Lorna
