Can you help me identify this plant?

It is between a foot and two tall. It has a scent I can't really place. It doesn't seem strong enough for a mint.

    I don't recognise what it is, but I can tell you it definitely isn't mint of any description, and may not even be an edible plant.

  • @Stephie it's indeed Lanzarote. I debated whether to add that information, sorry. The plant has been completely dead all the 6 months I've been here (when it was hot and extremely dry), but after the recent rainfalls it started to grow and blossom.

Try Turnera. http://www.google.com/search?q=turnera&tbm=isch

A few of my Turnera ulmifolia photos: http://www.henriettes-herb.com/plants/turnera/ulmifolia.html Although this could be a different species of Turnera.

  • Can you improve this answer by adding why you think it matches a turnera?
