salvia ID please?

noinwiAugust 28, 2006

I got these at a clearance sale a bit earlier in the season, they had no name tag and were just budding up. This morning I cut some to put in a vase and they smelled like grape soda! After I brought them in they turned more of a purple color and lost most of their scent(but look beautiful with yellow marigolds). I'm new to salvias and was wondering if they looked (or sounded)familiar to anyone. Any info is appreciated.

Hi,

This salvia is salvia Farinacea (blue bedder)the flowers are sweetly scented, although a perennial itis treated as an annual, it sets seeds.
