I posted this before (when it wasn't starting to flower) and Sylvia thought it was a red leaf amaranth - still maybe but I'm not sure. I don't know is you can see that the flowers are starting to turn lavender.
Here's another view
any ideas?

RE: still trying to identify

You might be right, purpleinopp! Although the leaves aren't as dark purple (I googled and got loads of images) as most perilla I saw, the leaves have a definite fragrance. I can't quite identify what it is but I'll keep sniffing! Then I have to figure out how to cook with it!
