Does it smell of lemon if you rub the leaves if so it's lemonbalm a great medicinal plant to have. If not might be a dead nettle. @kimmy01

Or it could be a type of sage...but lamium is more likely on second thoughts, specially if, when it flowers, it's a pale pinky colour - think you got it Angie @ada31514 Haha but there again Christine could have nailed it 😀xx @pixierose

Just googled laminum @ada31514 and it does look a lot like that... Is it a good thing? It looks pretty anyway 😊

Thanks @clipperty It looks like it will be flowering soon enough then I'll be taking more pics. The neighbors are always catching me taking pictures of the plants 😂😂

Lamiums are good ground cover, often in shade and with silvery markings on the foliage...yep - my neighbours must think I'm bonkers crouching here and there to get the pic I want! Generally in dressing gown and flip flops or something equally as fetching! Xx

Personally I don't have it in the garden but that's because I want the space for other plants. Remember It's your garden and if you like it then keep it. The garden I am in currently was over run with lemon balm. I had to dig loads out.

I like the sounds of the silver markings on the foliage and there is a part of the rockery that's very shaded I could maybe try and keep it in check there. Lol yes I'm the same in the dressing gown or something 😂 @clipperty

Not sure, lemon balm? does it have a scent when you crush/rub a leaf , can't remember if mine has brighter green leaves ☺

There's a few patches of it on the rockery I can't remember sowing anything like that there but its a possibility we scattered a lot of old seeds about to see if they would germinate last spring 🤔 I rubbed it like you would with mint and there was nothing... I'll crush a leaf tomorrow 😊😂👍👍👍thanks @titchyfra

Don't think it's lemon balm as I'd think you'd get a scent from rubbing the leaves.....🤔
