Help me identify this plant please - it grows small lavender-coloured flowers close together, similar to lavender itself. I was told it could be Cuban oregano, but I couldn't detect any oregano smell or flavour.

@Muzz67 oh my goodness I think you might be right! Just googled it - the flower looks just like what I remember. Unfortunately I didn't get a photo last year to compare. But I'm 99% sure you've solved the mystery. Thank you so much!

Do the flowers look pale purple and waxy and angular and then the dark purple petals finaly sprout out and the leaves stink a little weirdly ..I have one in my plants list ...have a look 😊

@Muzz67 yes the flowers look just like that. And I'm pretty sure from what I've seen on Google, the leaves are the same as well. I'm so happy I've finally learned the name of it! Thanks for your help :)
