The subtle garlic flavor of Garlic Chives are perfect for use in uncooked dishes where raw regular garlic might be overwhelming or too spicy. This Asian beauty is sometimes called Perennial Chinese Chives or Chinese leeks or even just leek. While not the true leek, this is probably a reference to their blades which resemble little leek leaves. Garlic Chive flowers bloom in the warmth of summer, which is in contrast to the early spring flowers of regular Chives. When they are in full bloom the beneficial insects and bees flock to the pure white nectar rich Garlic Chive flowers. All parts are edible and can be harvested throughout the growing season. Perennial in zone 3 - 9.
