I have groups of this plant growing in some of my beds. I’m a novice and inherited most everything in the yard when I bought the house last year. I need to figure out if this is invasive and should be gotten rid of. thanks!

    Possibly Veronica spicata…
    Should bloom soon.

    I’m certainly no expert but that looks an awful lot like mint. Pinch a leaf and see if it smells like spearmint. If so, time to make some Mojitos!

    I believe Shannon is correct. Check the stem. If it is square, which im sure it is and the Opposing leaves make me think mint family. Does it have a spearmint, peppermint, or lemon (lemon balm) scent? Hope you figure it out.
