Dwarf White Chives are an attractive summer-flowering addition to the herb garden. The fine green flat leaves are highly fragranced with an onion taste, and can be used to add flavour to salads, soft cheeses and Eastern dishes. The seeds are also edible, and can be pressed for oil, sprouted or eaten as they are.
Chives will grow in any soil conditions, and although they prefer sunny positions, they will tolerate some shade.
Growing to 6 inches, they are a beautiful specimen, and grow in a clump forming manner, producing white flowers when in full bloom, which is usually in late summer.
The flowers are a white, star-like profusion above the leaf, and when grown in numbers, form a beautiful mass of white.
