Water Mint ID

It appears to be water mint from the small rounded leaves.
I presume you also checked by bruising one old leaf. Whilst it smells of mint it is a much milder aroma than normal garden or spear mints.

yes i did

crush a leaf and it was minty, I then failed to find water mint in the index of my book (great observation skills!) so I wasted far too much of my time and now yours.
