I might be wrong but I just went outside and looked at my Yvonnes Salvia and it looks like it.

medont...when you said it didn't have a smell, did you try crushing a few leaves between your fingers?

Jim, Yvonnes Salvia would have a smell if the leaves were crushed, wouldn't it?

The leaves on my plants do have a smell but not a strong smell or even one I can describe or compare to other plants.

its smell is kinda greenish, but almost like cut grass, but it has a slight smell that i can't put my hands on. LOL not musky, or even good for that matter, very slight. but mine has more "wrinkles" than yours does, but i'd sure be happy if it was the yvonnes; salvia!! i did grow it last year and have seen no sign of it this year. :'( i sure did like it. i thought it reminded me of some kinda lobster plant the way it first comes out. LOL i was simply amazed by its growth. :') ~Medo

Maybe it's Black and Blue salvia? Which is guaranitica.

Take a look at the link.

Here is a link that might be useful: maybe...
