      Hi Constance, yes, these can be harvested anytime during the growth cycle and yes, the leaves are normally dried before use. r

    This plant was everything you said it was.

    Last year I bought quite a few members of the mint family. I believe that I had 100% germination with the Cordao. Living in northern Nevada, trying new products is sketchy. The plants grew about 4′ – 5′ tall, and held up to the wind. The seed heads are fascinating. I highly recommend this plant.
