Is this salvia?

Hi all, is this salvia? If it is can you tell which one? My wife loves it and would like me to plant a few for her but I'm not 100% sure I even know what the stuff is.

I'd greatly appreciate your help.

Thanks

Rick

Wow that's a beautiful plant but not a salvia. I think it's known as Russian sage-Perovskia.

It sure looks like Perovskia to me. This genus is related to the European Salvias. See the Salvia Research Projects discussion

and the cladistic chart (URL given below)
