help identify this plant

clagraizeApril 1, 2011

I planted this in my garden last year as a recommendation from a local nursery. It grew to 4' high by 4' wide. It had a silvery green leaf and a purple flower. It bloomed in the early fall through early winter. It could not tolerate a 25F freeze. Any ideas? (it is the shrub between the sylvester and the grill)
