Yes, lamb's ear flowering stalks can be dried. Pick the stems either before the dot-like purple flowers appear or when they start to show. (The flowers generally disappear in the drying process). We air-dry them, hanging them upside down. They keep their silvery color well, which the leaves do not.

Hi. You mentioned the leaves not keeping their silvery colour during the drying process. I was wondering if you knew about the results of pressing the leaves of the lambs ear plant in regards to it retaining colour and texture?

Thanks
