    Hey, me again,

    Here's another shrub that I would like to know the name of. Also from Santa Fe last Sept.

    Tks!

    Don't know about the plant in the middle, but there is a Buddleja (maybe B. davidii) over at the left side.

    Looks like Buddleja left front and Perovskia right back.

    Thanks everyone. I should have gotten a close-up shot. Could be sage, but it sure was Very purple. Lavender-like.

    The centre one is definitely Perovskia, known as Russin Sage but not a true sage (i.e. Salvia). I can see its pinnatifid leaves when I blow up the pic. Its flower and inflorescence shapes are also distinctive.
