There is a plant called Petrovskia, or Russian Sage. Perhaps that is it. It has blue/ mauve flowers and is a member of the mint family.

Perovskia, Beattie - not that it matters, except Mactudor will need to look it up.

Whoops, thanks Bamboo! You're right - it helps to have the right name when googling.
