Allium Onion 'Chives'

(Allium schoenoprasum)

Waxy, grass-like leaves flavored like onion, purple blooms! 

Easy to grow, onion chives pack a lot of flavor for their compact size. The plants form neat grass-like clumps of tubular leaves that contribute an onion flavor to salads, creamy soups, potatoes, egg dishes, and others. A wonderful addition to an herb garden. Great for containers, and also makes a neat border. Enjoy the light purple blooms in the spring-they are edible, too. Add to dishes at the very end of the cooking process, because their mild flavor is destroyed by heat. The purple flowers of onion chives, which are also edible, float beautifully in a soup. For dishes that need a mild, onion-like flavor
