    Hi Ajaz, You didn't tell us anything about the plant. Does it have a scent when the leaves are rubbed? How big does the plant get? My initial thoughts are that it is a member of the mint family. My bees like to work members of the mint family.

    I still think a mint. Definitely a type of herb from the texture of the leaves.

    It seems to definitely belong to the Labiatae family, but in order to give a more specific identification you'd have to give some really close-up pictures of the flowers. Possibly a species of Salvia.

    With you being in India It could ba a plant that non of us have ever seen before. Especially if it is considered a weed and has no commercial agriculture value. Other than a good bee plant and cover crop.
    What is its growing range latitude, elevation, climate, temperate zone, soil condition, water requirements, how long dose the bloom last, does the hole plant bloom at once or does the bloom progress up the stem giving new bloom?

    The leaves look like a sage. I cannot see the blooms clearly.

    It looks like a type of borage to me. At least a lot like the borage I planted this year, thought the leaves are slightly different. Blooms are a little fuzzy in the pictures though. Good luck!

    Looks like Russian Sage to me except the flowers are white instead of purple? is it a bush or a single stem plant? Jack
