"Mint Bush" mystery; ID needed

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what this maybe? It is currently flowering heavily. It was donated as a "mint bush" and is about 5ft tall. Looks kind of like a Plectranthus. The leaves are scented, more of an oregano-herb scent than mint.

Closest thing i could find to the plant in your pictures, thus far is Tetradenia riparia, sometimes called Ginger Bush,  from South Africa.

Apparently is Dioeceous as well but easily roots from cuttings.

Could be Prostanthera?

I had come across Prostanthera while researching but it just didn't match up. But Tetradenia riparia sure looks like a match.

Thanks!
