A lady at church has this plant coming up in her garden. It has square stems and the leaves have a heavenly scent of sassafrass/licorice. It is a 4" pot for reference on size.
Hope you can help me ID this plant.

Wish we had smell-a-vision. The scent is just like smelling sassafrass.

When you wrote that earlier, Lynn, that was my clue. Nothing else with little purple flowers smells like sassafras.
Honeybees love it. Me too.
