Notes:

This plant was growing beside the woods, beside a gravel road. It was taking over the area. The leaves had a beautiful lemony smell that was strong and somewhat minty. I wondered if it was edible.

    Have this all over my backyard. It blooms purple in July/August, and I love it but it’s a spreader.

    Maybe lemon balm (Melissa officinalis)? Flowers can also help with the ID. Check out the link below and see if you have a match. Click on images to enlarge. Before consuming any wild plants, please consult the local Agricultural Extension for a confirmed ID. Best wishes! https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemon_balm
