Garlic Chives (Allium Tuberosum) are similar in habit to chives but the leaves are flatter and the flowers are white. It boasts a delicate flavour of garlic and onion and grows to a height of about 30cm (12″). Garlic chives have white flowers with flat solid leaves. The seed is black, faceted and pear shaped and contains a peppery taste.
The plant has a distinctive growth habit with flat solid leaves unlike either onion or garlic, and straight thin white-flowering stalks that are much taller than the leaves. It grows in slowly expanding clumps, but also readily sprouts from seed. Besides its use as a vegetable, it also has attractive flowers for your garden. Flowers can be cut and dried.
