Plant for ID

From the photo I assume it Salvia officnalis

lamiaceae & verbenaceae week: Salvia officinalis from my garden in Ritterhude:
Here are some fotos of Salvia Officinalis taken in June 2010 from my garden in Ritterhude.
Salvia is native to the Mediterranean region but can be found in gardens in northern regions too. As the name suggests it has healing properties. Tee from Salvia leaves is very good against cold and cough. Fresh and
dry leaves are used in the kitchen in many, mainly in fischrecipies. I have plenty of Salbei in my garden and I cut the branches and hang them over the fireplace. In winter, if we make fire the room is filled with Salbeifragrance. It is also supposed to be insectrepellent.

Garden plant seen in June,17.
Seems to be from Lamiaceae family.

It is a type of Sage/Salvia. Cannot narrow it down. Too many possibilities.
Please, in future, can you include something in the photo for size reference? That may help.

Salvia fruticosa Mill. ??

This appears to be Salvia officinalis, possibly the cultivar Berggarten or another broad leaved cultivar.
