I believe it is considered to

I believe it is considered to be in the Lamiaceae family.

Verbenaceae/Lamiaceae

Thanks for the update on the family Martin. My source is the RHS Index of Garden Plants Mark Griffiths 1994 which is a bit dated now and it always seems to take a while for these taxonomic changes to filter down to horticultural level!
