My friend grew this at her school hydroponically, but lost the packet & doesn’t remember what it is called. The spent flowers in the pics are no more than a half inch long & they & the leaves have a strong pine scent with just a hint of mint when crushed. What on earth could this be???

    It looks like hops that you use for beer.

    It does, doesn’t it? But it’s much smaller. Since I first posted, I’ve found some oregano species that are very similar, so I think that’s the genus we’re looking at, but it would be nice to get a confirmation as it’s scent is SO un-oregano!

    I think you are right about oregano.
