Reminds me of Perennial Salvia, S. verticillata 'Purple Rain':

Hopefully someone more knowledgeable will come along with an exact ID for you. If it does turn out to be 'Purple Rain', I hope you will add your photo's to the database. There are currently no photo entries for this plant: Lilac Sage (Salvia verticillata 'Purple Rain')
