I bought this Salvia today which was labelled as S.azurea. Whilst I'm confident that it is not S.azurea I have no idea what it is (although I suspect that it is tender).
It stands about 60cm tall and the foliage has a minty peach scent (if that makes any sense!).

Thank you @Calif_Sue
I think that you may be pretty much on the money with that. I wonder if @FBTS or @Monty72 could confirm it?
