This description is for Allium schoenoprasum: Allium schoenoprasum or chives, the pretty plant with the edible leaves. It has long thin and curved leaves that you can snip off and add to your salads. They have a peppery onion flavour. Chives are very easy to grow and they will spread rapidly. If you want chives elsewhere in your garden you can simply dig up a part of the clump and plant it in the new position. It has balls of purple flowers that grow on sturdy stems. This is the smallest of the edible members of the onion family. Chives will repel many insects so its good to plant it near other plants that are targeted by insect pests. It will attract bees though. Chives grow up to around 50cm in height.
