Chinese Chives

A hardy perennial from the Allium family, Chives are the earliest herb to appear in the spring. The seed germinates in two to three weeks in moist soil with warm, dark conditions indoors but is just as happy being direct-sown into the garden once the threat of frost has passed. Prolific and easy to grow, Chives are also perfect in terrace pots. We like to use them fresh all summer long, taking care to discard any of the flowering stems that become woody after the flower dies. Perennial. Hardiness zones: 4-8. Height: 12" to 18".

Average seed life: 1 year.

#6135 Nira Broadleaf Chinese Chives
Allium tuberosum. AKA Garlic Chives or Kau Tsai, our improved Taiwanese import is used extensively in Asian salads and stir-fries. Its flat, wide, dark green leaves are more strongly flavored than regular chives, with a mild taste of garlic and onions-perfect when the use of raw garlic would be overwhelming. Its foliage develops charming green mounds with attractive white blossoms from June to August. (OP.)
