I think it originally came from flower bed next door of a home ,next door, rarely occupied now. Is this lemon oregano????? or what??? Please tell
It is growing all down the gravel driveway next door other side,too. Plus I have volunteers too in our gravel,too....
I believed it had yellow or off white small flowers,
did smell lemony a little ...a while back...
Thanks
Jean

Is this close enough? or should try taking some more?
Thank you

It doesn't look like anything I'm familiar with. Try posting to the "Name that Plant" forum.

If it was lemon oregano it would have a very distinctive smell. I agree with Fatamorgana - it isn't any plant I know. My money is on a weed. Try NTP.

Here is a link that might be useful: Name that Plant

Doesn't look like my lemon basil, and doesn't look like oregano, either. I think it's a weed, too.

Jean - you asked what we thought and we have all said it is not oregano. Fatamorgana, especially, has a vast knowledge of herbs, both common and unusual, and if she can't id it is unlikely to be any herb which would volunteer lustily in your garden. I would reiterate to put it on Name That Plant to get an id.
