It sure looks like an orenano or mint. Does the foliage have an odor when crushed?

Diane - is that anywhere near the plants I sent you - or did I actually send you some? It looks just like my anise hyssop - licorice mint!

Rub the leaves and smell it - is it very licoricey???

I rubbed the leaves and It does have a scent but I can't say it's like either oregano or mint!

It looked like it had square stems. that is usually in the mint family. That is as close as I can get. Maybe someone else..................

Most of the mints are invasive and grow easily from seeds spread by birds and just about anything else too. i started with one little lemon balm. Have more growing up to a quarter mile away.

I'd bet on anise hyssop as well. I had one last year that had a faint licorice smell that was really hard to identify until the plant had matured a bit past flowering. It definitely is a mint--square stem with opposite leaves. All mints are mighty happy taking over a garden, too.
