Silvery leaved plant resembling Rosemary

These photos were sent to me by a friend, whose friend wrote:  "I purchased this a year ago at Ashcombe in the herb section where it was labeled as "English Sage". It is not a herb in my opinion. The woody stem is not square sided nor does it have a fragrance. The leaves are tiny with a silvery cast as they age.  It is in a 6" pot and has not bloomed despite full sun. "  

It reminds me of Bog Rosemary - Andromeda polifolia.  What do you think?
