Please identify plant

iborlaJune 12, 2014

Couldn't find what I just posted, so posting again- my apologies if this is a duplicate. Plant is about 3ft tall and equal spread. Squarish stems, leaves alternate on stem. No sign of any flowers developing so far. Has a strong herbal type scent when leaves crushed with fingers. (Nevermind the malva zebrina coming up in the middle of it.) Any ideas? Thanks!!

Some kind of Atriplex perhaps?

Thanks for replying. If it is an Atriplex, I haven't found any matches with photos of species online, but will keep looking. I live in eastern Washington shrub-steppe area. Not sure if this is a native or not- it smells a lot like a mojito!!! Sort of minty but with kind of a lime smell also- very pleasant. Here is a photo of a single stem showing leaf structure better and size. Any other ideas??

It's tanacetum balsamita!!! Was able to find it by googling for plants that smell like mint but are not mint. Should get yellowish tanacetum-like flowers soon.

OK, after seeing the close up clearly not Atriplex.
