Garlic Chives

Garlic Chives are tall and upright with wide, flat leaves. They have a strong garlic flavor that is useful in the kitchen, and they make great companion plants in organic gardens. They repel aphids, and the flowers attract bees, butterflies and beneficial insects.

Garlic Chives produce clusters of starry white flowers in late August. Years ago, I read that the famous English plantsman, Christopher Lloyd, grew them in his garden to come up through The Fairy rose. So I planted garlic chives around my Portmeiron rose. They make a great pair!

Garlic Chives reseed excessively unless deadheaded. Also known as Chinese Chives. Deer resistant. Hardy in zones 3-9. Also see Common Chives.
