It has a fragrance and it's also edible, I suspect it could be Mentha Longifolia, but I'm not sure. I try to propagate it through placing it in a cup filled with water near the window in order to get the sunlight that encourages the growth of roots. In a matter of 4 days the roots started to grow.

  • Where did you find it? Whats the smell?

  • @Jeremy It was given to me, the smell is like oregano and mint, same for the taste by the way.

  • It doesn't look like Mentha longifolia to me - leaves are often shorter, or a greyish green colour, and although I can see the underside on one leaf, its hasn't got that typical mint appearance - lots or ribs and a slightly velvety look. Not sure what it is though, not sure I'd eat it without ID - many herbs are more medicinal than culinary. Any idea what the flowers are like?

  • I have no idea about the flowers, but I ate some leaves and I'm completely fine.

    Well whatever it is, it's definitely labitae so it's not going to hurt you, but I wouldn't eat any more of without knowing for sure what it is.

Looks like estragon or tarragon; artemisia dracunculus. I cannot comment, therefore I risk it and give it as an answer
