RE: lambs ear

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.

RE: lambs ear

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
