Some kind of Plectranthus. Maybe P. amboinicus:
Cuban Oregano (Coleus amboinicus)

What color were the blooms?

With the height shown in your photo, it might be Indian Coleus (Plectranthus barbatus) which can grow 4 to 8 feet in height.

Boldo (Peumus boldus) is a tree and not the plant in your photo. I do believe your plant is a type of Plectranthus, one of the taller growing varieties.

It may be known that way regionally. Wiki mentions boldo as a common name for P. barbatus:

Thanks Tiffany! Thumbs up That certainly shows how common names of plants can be so confusing because P. boldus and P. barbatus are entirely different.
