Can someone id this for me? Some seem to think it's a salvia of some sort. I really have no idea.

Looks like culinary sage.

This is a dumb question but what does it smell like? Because it kind of looks like lemon balm. Sarah

the leaf texture is the same as lemon balm, but the growth pattern's wrong- it doesn't make rosettes like that.

does look like cooking sage, but the leaves are kind of fat to be the kind I have...

it could just as easily be one of those not-lettuces that you find in 'mixed greens'...

any reaction to the crush and sniff test?

the foliage is like that of Salvia horminum (also called S.viridis or painted sage).
Can you tell if it's an annual or a perennial? If it's an annual it's propably painted sage
