We have a plant that looks like it belongs to the mint family, but it doesn't fully fit in as one single type. It smells similar to lemon balm, but sweetly grassy.otherwise it looks similar to some pictures of catnip I've seen as its edges are round, and its leaves are shaped like a heart and fuzzy. I would appreciate if someone could help.

Edit: this is the best picture and even then for it to fit I had to crop it a lot.

This one is to see the stem.

  • A single picture of the whole plant might be more useful if you can add one please - those thumbnails are fuzzy under magnification... – Bamboo Apr 21 at 18:49
  • @Bamboo do you know how to make them bigger as I'm on a tablet and had emailed them to me from a phone that took the pictures actually detailed, but I don't know how to make them bigger on here. – Luna Versalias Apr 22 at 5:59
  • I don't think there's a way of doing that, but you may get better results if whoever emailed them to you from their phone simply takes one, good picture and sends that on its own. – Bamboo Apr 22 at 11:01

If it has a square stem, then it's definitely a mint. The pictures are very tiny, so difficult to see much detail and impossible to make a more detailed ID.
