Flower of the Moment - Bethany Sage

When I bought this plant at the local market, it was just a stick in a pot. The pot was marked "Bethany Sage". Though I'd never heard of Bethany Sage, I assumed it was a salvia.I quite like salvias so I gave this one a go.
Well, this plant just took off. It has taken over it's part of the garden, and needs to be heavily pruned regularly to make it behave.
The payoff is these pretty flowers, about this time of year.
I haven't come across another Bethany Sage anywhere - does anyone know anything about them?
