It's a Salvia. Not sure on which one.

It also looks a bit like Russian Sage - Perovskia sp. - which isn't related to sage. Blooms late summer/fall here.

Blooms look similar but the foliage is quite a bit different: http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/169918/

There is an Agashtache and Salvia forum - you might try posting a query there

Definitely S. leucantha, probably the most popular Salvia in So. Cal.
