Possible mint relative. Please take a look!

bongies(9)February 23, 2014

While weeding my herb garden which is partially shaded in the morning. I discovered this hidden beauty. The flowers bloom on a bud that is like lavender and basil. Flower is a beautiful blue or lavender. Plant doesn't seem to have any smell but I haven't really tried investigating the aroma yet. The reason I assume it is a mint relative is the square stem it has. Also my last bit of information is that someone suggested the plant be Salvia Splendens I was not able to verify this and would appreciate it if anyone has another plant name or agrees with the person who thinks it Salvia Splendens. Thanks in advance!

It's not Salvia splendens, as I had guessed previously.
