Can anyone ID this? Its got to be something in the Salvia/Mint family, square stems, has a smell thats very familiar but i cant quite describe or think of what it smells like at the moment. Whole bunch of it growing in this spot, must have seeded uere somehow, maybe from bird seed? Maybe not. Really not sure.

So sorry, totally by mistake, I've used the Plant ID forum a lot, must have clicked the wrong thing somewhere, thanks so much for relocating it!

It does not, it smells SIMILAR to cat mint, but not as minty or fragrant in general

Not sure about this one, im not too familiar with it, but looked up pics and agastache leaves seem much smaller, im also not seeing any evidence that its going to flower, at this point anyway, i know its late in the season, but theyve been growing for at least over a month now and are maybe almost 5 feet tall now

It reminds me of Salvia hispanica.

What about pineapple sage?
Blooms just before frost here.

I agree with Janine and stone that it's probably an ornamental sage.

I'd go with Pineapple Sage (Salvia elegans) but that may just be because I'm not familiar with Chia Sage (Salvia hispanica) . I don't think the leaves look right for Blue Anise Sage (Salvia coerulea) , but it is famous for smelling like cat pee.

Based on pics i found clicking that link, it looks most like Chia Sage, also looks a lot like Salvia Divinorim, which ive only seen once (alive and growing) but unlikely as i cant imagine how that would have gotten here

Is it showing any signs that it might still bloom?

If you're in RI, I'm guessing you're at the end of your growing season, yes? Maybe you won't find out until next year. Thinking

Still no signs of blooming, and yes growing season is coming close to an end

IDK what it is, but it's a late bloomer.

Pretty. Definitely a late bloomer!

Could be Chia Sage S. hispanica? Looking online, the flowers can apparently be that color. And the leaves look right.

Of course, it could also be a hybrid of some sort... Shrug!
