Second year from seed. Didn't flower last year. Was suppose to be-- aquilegia chrysantha. Obviously not that.

Is there any odor if you crush a leaf? Anything else you know about it? Looks like it could be some type of mint.

I agree....the stems do look to be rather square and that is one of the characteristics of plants in the mint family. (Lamiaceae)

It doesn't have any smell. The leaves feel fuzzy.

Reminds me of Plectranthus amboinicus: http://www.google.com/search?q=plectranthus+amboinicus&hl=en...

I agree that it resembles Plectranthus amboinicus, BUT Duane says it has no fragrance to the leaves....P amboinicus has rather a strong scent even when just brushed lightly...and it is hard to not recognize that herby oregano fragrance....

It does not have opposite leaves. Cannot be in the mint family.

Yup....thanks for pointing that out....so busy looking at the leaves and stem, I overlooked that...square stems and alternate leaves would lean toward something in Scrophulariaceae Family...maybe a veronica?

I like that suggestion, Moon, maybe it's smaller than I thought.

I was guesstimating the height and think it is only about 6 to 8 inches tall...pictures can be so deceiving Green Grin!

Maybe Veronica persica, Persian speedwell....I know it is present in Oregon

I think the plant looked like stevia.
