Chives (Allium schoenoprasum)
Location: Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii
In addition to flowers and vegetables, we also grow herbs in our garden. It's so nice to have fresh herbs for cooking. One of those is chives, grown in a big pot, located conveniently near our kitchen door.
Chives (Allium schoenoprasum) are the smallest species of the onion family. They are perennials; ours have been growing continuously in the same pot for years. They are flowering right now. The blossom reminds me of a fluffy clover flower.
