Are these basils? If so, what kinds? (When there is more than one kind of plant in a picture, I'm asking about the one in the center.)

Thank you.

  • @Droseracapensis Yes, I can and did smell them. In fact, I've been eating them, and still I can't tell. So great is my ignorance. 3 and 5 smell like basil to me. 4 smells like lemongrass. 2 smells like mint and 1 like some kind of medicine. – bongbang Jul 28 '20 at 4:14

Here's what they look like to me:

  1. Holy basil or mint
  2. Mint
  3. Mint
  4. I want to say mint, but it looks a bit different. Not sure.
  5. Marjoram, or possibly oregano; if it is a basil, then probably Spicy Globe Bush

Some mint-like plants may be other things, such as pennyroyal or horse mint.
