This plant is about 10 inches high, and does have a slight pineapple scent. The leaves look sage-like, but I cannot find any pictures of a sage with flowers like this. Does anyone have any idea of what it is?

I have grown pineapple sage but it has a brilliant red flower stalk. I have not ever seen a purple one. Maybe it is a new cultivar.

Yes, all of the picture I can find, show that the flowers are red. The photo has lightened the flower colour, they look almost black in the garden.
Further exploring on the internet has led me to Salvia guaranitica or anise sage, the black 'flowers'are just the calyces, the flowers have yet to come out.
