We were given this today and all we know is it came from Greenway. It
is sprawling in habit and has quite a strong mint/eucalyptus scent but
leaves a pungent after-scent on the fingers when brushed by your hand. I
wonder if it's a strewing herb and doubt it would be a culinary one. At
first I wondered about wormwood but it's the wrong flower colour, though
that pungency is a bit reminiscent of Artemisia. If anyone knows what
it is, we'd be very grateful.[email protected]/9708230021/

Could it be a form of Penny royal?
