i have a couple beds of agastachce, however, im not sure exactly what it is. they are very low lying, (not more than a foot tall) and their leaves are very small. The stems of the plant are only about 12 inches long, and they are very stiff. the leaves are only like a half of a centimeter. they arn't just baby agastache, because i have ha them for several years. they dont get any bigger. they are wild growing too. they have the agastache flower bud, with tiny little purple flowers covering the entire bud, and they are very aromatic. what is it?

If it is not ground-ivy Glechoma hederacea which is a common low-growing purple bloomer, you will have to post a picture because one picture is worth 1000 words!

Well dead nettle, Lamium purpureum, would be another guess.
