What type of herb?

Posted by TropPlanter 9 (My Page) on

I have found a plant in my garden that had sprouted with out my knowing. I narrowed it down to a herb by asking around. So I didn't taste it just in case. But I really like this plant so I want to keep it. But each plant always needs some sort of special things. So if you can please figure out what this is?

It looks a bit like catnip, but I'm not entirely convinced.

If it has a square stem, it is some kind of mint. If you crush a leaf, is there a fragrance?

Here is a link that might be useful: Google catnip photos

RE: What type of herb?

Yes, does it have a scent? It looks very much like Lemon Balm.

RE: What type of herb?

Not Lemon Balm imo. That is less toothed and not matt. Much more like nepeta. A picture of the whole plant would be helpful.

RE: What type of herb?

Plectranthus amboinicus?
