I had to relocate many of my herbs to a different location a few years back. Since then, some survived and some never did survive that 1st winter. Now all of a sudden I have this plant showing up where I transplanted it, and in other areas of my yard also. Just would like to clarify that it is in fact what I think it is. I go with safety first, than to be sorry later. I think this is Bergamot, as it seems to fit all the descriptions in my plant identification book, but would rather see what you all think. Thanks in advance:)
That isn't the type of leaf my several different kinds of beebalm have. The flower looks more like, in fact, just like, my coyote mint. It seems to have a square stem, and with that flower, it's obviously a mint or balm of some kind. I'd encourage it myself!
Looked up coyote mint and it says it's a lower flowering plant. These are about 3 1/2' to 4' tall. Have no clue, but am unsure if it's safe to dry and use in teas? Thanks :)
Hard to say, as I planted it in the only spot left, right by my lemon mint and lemon balm??
It looks like bee balm to me. Leaves should smell like oregano. Love it.
Looks a lot like this one.
