The delicate leaves of chives carry a mild, onion flavor perfect for salads, vegetables, egg dishes, and soups.Chives are a perennial member of the onion family that produce beautiful mauve orb shaped edible flowers. Flowers taste best just after they have opened. These are very easy to grow plants. Soil needs to be moist, fertile, rich, and well-draining. Their small bulbs grow near the soil surface, so it is recommended to use mulch to conserve moisture. Chives grow best in full sun, though they will tolerate light shade.

 

I grow mine in my meadow garden and use the flowers in floral arrangements.
