Is catnip supposed to have prickly hairs on the underside of the leaf and on the stem?

Not sure this is catnip, Christina, tho it may be. Here's a description I pulled from Google. Distinguishing Features: Catnip is a whitish-gray plant with an aromatic minty odor. It is a hardy, upright, perennial herb with sturdy stems covered with very fine hairs. Catnip bears heart-shaped, grayish-green leaves. What do you think @cyndi @KariSamuel ?

Also, the stem will feel kinda square.

I agree with @cyndi that this is a variety of lantana. @tinaaune - The formation of the flowers is my clue on this one!
