A spreading clump-forming perennial which has flattish leaves to about 60cms, requiring sun to partial shade with some summer watering. In autumn starry white edible flowers are produced making it a nice edging plant. Can be cut back to the ground and divided every second year. Garlic chives are classic flavour partners to parsley, basil, tarragon and chervil, soups, salads, herb butter and herb bread. Used a lot in Asian cuisine.
