    laura735, I think you are right, it’s bee balm. Now I get to identify the other plant in the pot that I thought was bee balm.

    Maybe bee balm (Monarda)? According to sources, bee balm aromatic leaves is a mixture of thyme & oregano. when it blooms and you still don’t know, please resubmit with photo of flowers. Copy & paste for the included link below for more information on one of the species the M. didyma. Click on images to enlarge. Best wishes!
