Hi,
My brother received this plant as a present from some friends but misplaced the identity card that came with it. Apparently this plant is used as food seasoning(That's what the friends who gave this to him remember) but don't take my word for it...that's way I am asking after all Smiling
Thank You!

Looks like a variety of mint. Does it have a strong smell when you rub one of the leaves?

Hi,
When I smell it alone it doesn't have any smell but when I rub one of the leaves it has a little soft smell that reminds me of a lemon.

Hmm it does look very much like a Lemon Balm but from the pictures I compered it with a Lemon Balm, the Lemon Balm did not have those hair like things(excuse me for not knowing whats it called because I am no plant expert) on the leaves...
