    Looks a bit like lemon balm, Melissa officinalis. Pinch a leaf and sniff.  Lemon balm smells more lemony than a lemon.  Good for bees.
  • thanks josusa for suggestion,but not lemon balm,i know that one well,but i did crush a leaf to see if might have a scent ,but no smell  at all

    Do the stems have a square section? How large are those leaves?
