The very strongly flavoured hollow grassy foliage is topped by purple flower heads that are an ornamental feature of this rather useful edible plant. It grows from small bulbs that retain their foliage all year round in warmer climates but lose it during winter in frosty areas. The foliage can be cut at any time to give an onion like flavour to cooking dishes, the leaves will simply regrow over time to provide the next harvest. Chives are easily grown from seed and can be harvested very quickly if they are grown in ideal conditions in a sunny, fertile well drained garden soil.
