Could someone identify this plant for me. Came out of a seed package labelled Nasturtiums. Thanks in advance. MD

Salvia divinorum?

Looks to have stiff hairs on the stems so I am wondering if you got sent something like henbit. That got into the seed batch as a contaminant.

What do suspect it could be Embothrium? There aren't any henbits that look like that, are there? I missed noticing stem hairs. It would be strange and unlikely to get Salvia divinorum seeds in a Nasturtium packet, and come to think of it, that Salvia hardly ever blooms let alone produces viable seeds. I can't detect any stem hairs from my phone screen, and my laptop is broken so?

What I was thinking of when I typed "henbit" was tetrahit.

I don't know? The leaves on this plant seem more limp, but could be because of conditions. Do you think Galeopsis tatrahit is a better match?

Galeopsis is what I've been talking about the whole time.

Yeah of course I knew that at tetrahit. Neither suggestion looks comfortable to me. The person who posted this has moved on or something so I'm in any hurry to solve this. It might be Galeopsis?
