Yes, it has lots of nice purple flowers. I think it a type of Salvia.

Mexican Bush Sage (Salvia leucantha). There's some variation, but the flowers themselves are usually white. That rich purple color comes from the velvety bracts--also good for touchy-feely gardens!

Thanks for the name. I knew it was a type of Salvia...just couldn't remember the species. Thanks again! :>)
