That looks like rosemary. Do the leaves smell when you rub them? Or could it be Lavender? LOL

Ha ha! And I thought the other plant might be a lavender - I'll smell it later on.

Yes - I just checked - they smell like what's that thing - anise? Licorice-like but not quited as heavy as licorice - it's a medicinal smell.

Certainly not rosemary (which is a member of the lavender family). But it certainly looks like a lavender. Rosemary has almost needle like leaves and doesn't smell like aniseed (I speak as a darn good cook not a darn good gardner).
If the leaves smell like aniseed then it is certainly a herb but is not the classic dill type with feathery type leaves, or even basil with broad leaves. So let's settle for a lavender. Which one, I leave to better gardners. (But not better cooks). Don't forget that lavender was originally grown as a herb. Bit strong for modern taste.

Well, we'll see what it does - maybe it will bloom soon.

It looks like something that will grow big.

There is a type of lavender that grows prostrate as it flowers. Am interested to see what happens as it matures and flowers.
