Easy to grow, onion chives pack a lot of flavor for their compact size. The plants form neat grass-like clumps of tubular leaves that contribute an onion flavor to salads, creamy soups, potatoes, egg dishes, and other culinary uses that are well established. A wonderful addition to an herb garden. Great for containers. Also makes a neat border. Enjoy the light purple blooms in the spring. They are edible, too.
