  1. Question

    BRENDA VARGAS

    Are the plants cultivated in a greenhouse? Do you think the plants are free of viruses?

      hi brenda, thanks for contacting. however i’m a bit confused since this question is left on the cordao SEEDS item and so should pertain to the seeds, yet plants are mentioned. We do grow our own cordao, starting in the greenhouse. we do offer the plants in season, they are greenhoused. we also collect seeds from the plants later in the year, after they’ve been transplanted to the field. the seeds and the plants are virus-free, i didn’t know that this was ever a problem with cordao, i haven’t experienced it. richo

    First year it flowered!

    I live and grow in zone four in Wisconsin… Our summers are very short and so often I use a greenhouse and I start my transplants in March to extend the growing season… I’ve tried this one many years and this is the first year it has flowered! It’s been a hot summer, so I’m guessing that is why. Currently in flower it is well over my head 🙂

      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.
