Hi there.

I found this in my back yard, It is growing all over the place in large batches like this one. I dont know what it is. Is it a weed?

Does it have a scent? It looks a lot like Lemon Balm/Melissa officinalis.

Hi there.

Now that you mention it, it does have a scent. Its pretty hard to describe, though. Its a kinda weird smell.

Hi there!

I made a mistake, it smells like lemon. I think its lemon balm.

It's aggressive and will spread readily, reminds me of peppermint the way it pops up everywhere.
