    Hi group,

    I live in Tenerife Island, Spain, off the coast of Africa and my neighbor has this growing a cross the street from his house but nor he nor I have any idea what it is.
    So I'm turning here for help. I tried some plant ID apps to no avail.
    Characteristic is the very strong smell which I would say is mint-like...

    Maybe someone can help.
    Thanks a lot and stay safe.
    Dieter

    Thank you so much, looks like that's it.
    By the way, says in the description, link, that sometimes it's used to discourage dogs... due to strong smell. Let me tell you from personal experience that my dog loves them...

    Thanks again
    Stay safe
