Chives   Similar but smaller than spring onion they grow in bunches of grass-like, dark green hallow cylindrical leaves from 6 to 9 long. Deep green and mildly aromatic, with a less pungent flavor than scallions, they can be used as a garnish or chopped into butter, cream cheese or sour cream for a slightly onion flavor addition. The green tops are also cut and used in salads, soups, dips, soft cheeses and sauces.

Beautiful in full bloom with small round pink-purple flowers which can be used as a garnish.
