Garlic chives (Allium tuberosum), can be used the way you use regular chives. They are distinguishable from chives by their flat, broader leaves and fragrant white flowers.
Chives are native to regions in Asia and Europe. Garlic chive cultivars are also called “Chinese Chives” and are different from their relative Onion Chive variety. As one of the prolific “fines herbs” of cooking, Garlic Chives are easy to grow from seed during the cool season and do well in temperate climates as hardy perennial herbs.
Garlic Chive Herbs are a popular garnish in Asian and French cuisine and can make an aromatic ornamental herb in your garden!
