The Beautiful Flowers of Chive

Chive flower
I planted some chive in a container last year, and it has provided me with many wonderful meal as I used it to flavor my dishes. However, we could not keep up with it, and some came into flowers.

This beautiful flower was the reason for me to grow chive, because it is just so pretty in lavender! I know chive will multiply very fast, and keep it in a container was a smart choice. It comes back every year and not spreading all over the yard.

  1. I never have tried to grow spices. I did not know they bloomed either. This one certainly served two purposes. A great seasoning and a beauty to view.

  13. I grow chives in my herb garden and in amongst flowers as well because the butterflies like the chive flowers. They're good in a salad.
