Does anyone know the name of this plant?

The leaves are fragrant especially when rubbed.

Looks like a Lavender, maybe a young Lavendula dentata. Is this from the same source as your other mystery plant? If so it makes an Artemisia even more likely. Both drought resistant Mediterranean aromatic herbs.

RE: What's this plant?

That really does look like a lavender, especially with the "toothy" leaves.

RE: What's this plant?

I was growing Allard's lavander (Lavandula x allardi) which appears identical to this specimen.

RE: What's this plant?

That's quite possible tedhort. L. allardii is thought to be a cross between L. latifolia and L. dentata. But is it available in Egypt or is the species more likely?

RE: What's this plant?

It's indeed Lavandula x Allardii!

flora_uk, I got this and the "mystery" plant from a flea market. I also bought other herbs from there like Basil, Mint, Thyme and Rosemary.

Thanks to all of you for your great help.
