Garlic chives, Chinese leek, Oriental garlic, Asian chives (Eng.), Knoffel grasuie (Afr.)
Chinese chives are easy to grow, spread easily and grow quickly. In warmer areas, garlic chives stay green year round and in cold areas, leaves and stalks will completely die back and re-sprout in the spring. They can be grown as ornamental plants, culinary herbs, medicinal plants, and pest repellents. Chinese chives have a taste similar to garlic. Flowers are starry and white, produced in clusters on vertical, unbranched stems.
