My aunt brought me these two starts from a hanging basket that her sister had this summer. It was purchased with no ID. I have noticed that the plant has a very bad smell. Any ideas as to what it might be? The leaves are soft and a little hairy.

Yikes! looks like my cuban oregano that was Id'd by Poppysue.For me to take whiffs of it,it doesn't smell that bad.The other[?] oregano does smell horrible.BTW,it's in my photo on 'herb among some blooms'[too dark an image,tho.] I simply love this plant!Jane
Was hoping to find a picture in the plant database, but think you are probably right, Baa, about the ID. Thanks. Quick question though...does it root easily in water?
go-vols, I don't think this plant grows as tall as the one you mentioned. It hangs. The one you talk about is grown for its fragrance. I can almost guarantee you that you would NOT grow this one for fragrance. Its smell would be like mixing moth balls and dirty rags from a Gas Station.

go_vols,,,that is a pretty one. I have the regular stuff in my yard that can't be killed out. Will have to check more when I get back inside. I've been in here too long now and that brugs need to get back into the garage.
