    It sure looks like patchouli. I grow it as a houseplant.

    Pogostemon patchouli :) We grow the plants outdoors in summer and bring them indoors before frost. The seeds are so tiny....I'm going to try to sprout some this year.

    Let me know how you do with the seeds, both of mine went to seed, so I have loads of it. I read somewhere that it is uncommon for the plants to go to seed :confused:

    I've not had any luck with cuttings myself with this plant, I'll see what happens with these seeds I have and If I can get them to grow I'll get one to ya.
