This variety of chives has big flashy pink flowers that pop up from a mound of grassy leaves. You can eat the leaves and the flowers, but be sure to cut all the flowers back at the end of the season so this variety doesn’t self-seed—it will revert back to regular chives. The plant will continue to produce bulbs below ground, and you can split plants in the spring or fall.
