What do you think this is? It came in a pot with something from a nursery. People keep telling me it's Verbena bonariensis which it doesn't look like to me

    It looks verbenaoid. I'm sure you've sniffed it so that would rule out lemon verbena
    In London. Keen but lazy.

    Looks like Verbena to me too.

    The young leaves look suspiciously furry. Will inspect my trailers to see if anything looks similar. Agree it's definitely not VB. I suspect I might have the national collection😐

    Buddleia has also been suggested

    Is there a buddleja with serrated leaves? I know there are furry ones.  I thought verbena but one of those they put in hanging baskets, not Bonariensis.

    Google photos of Verbena quartz mix. T and M
