Cut-and-come-again garlic chives with beautiful white edible flat flowers that taste gently of garlic. Garlic chives grow and flower much later than ordinary chives, often going on into November, so it makes sense to grow some of both if you have the space.
Butterflies and bees love garlic chives and the flowers are covered right the way through summer into the middle of autumn. It is one of the best ever beneficial insect attractants.

CARE TIPS: The flowers of the garlic chives have a lovely rose-like fragrance that will perfume the room - it grows well in window boxes in the kitchen too.
