Allium tuberosum. Garlic chives are a versatile herb used widely in Asian cooking. When young, leaves and flower buds have a delicate aroma and a garlic flavor with hints of honey and onion. Add to stir fries, scrambled eggs, soups, and noodles, or sprinkle on meats and fish. The plant comes back every year (perennial), is good for containers and indoor growing for fresh herbs all winter long. Edible flowers are loved by bees.
