Chives, Polyvit (Organic)
Allium schoenoprasum. Perennial in zones 3-10.
Produces bunches of dark green, pungent, onion flavored leaves that are very versatile in the kitchen. Plants grow to about 12″ tall. Very hardy plants withstand neglect, can grow in full sun to part shade, and are great for containers. In midsummer, plants produce little, light purple, globe-shaped flowers that are also edible, pretty enough to grow as an ornamental, and provide a good nectar source for beneficial insects. Chives deserve a place in every perennial herb garden. Not only are they good in salads, sauces, and many other dishes, but you can substitute them for onions in a pinch. This is an improved variety, known for uniform, robust growth.
