I found a plant I thought was mint but the leaves smell like lemon.



Sounds like lemon balm. It's the same family as mint. It's lovely to make tea from.

or it could be 'lemon mint'. there are many different ones that have fruity fragrances. pineapple and apple mint spring to mind too. A photo would help.

Lemon balm has slichtly curved leaves and they have very distinquished vein runs it like mint has ideas of world domination though!
