SOLVED: Unusual plant I can't identify

East Missoula, MT

I think this might be an herb, but i'm not sure. Take a look at the pics and if any of you know it off the top of your head lemme know.

For some reason I was under the impression it might be edible, but i'm not sure.

Anyways thanks for the advice,

Shane

On another message board someone mentioned

Plectranthus montanus , does that seem right to you guys? I have no experience in the field. If it does, anyone got any tips the cool abilities this plant has?

Yeah, the more I look at it the more I think I tend to agree with GardenGuyKin. Cuban Oregano….

yes def. a sp. of Plectranthus, however, it is too small for either P. amboinicus, or verticiliatus. Sorry I can not say which sp. it may be.

I used to keep a collection of 8 or 10 aromatic Plectranthus cv.s. There may be more than that number that are used for flavoring. Their botany is very confused.

None of them have any hardiness to Montana winter weather.

I think Plectranthus amboinicus was right.
