Garlic chives

Genus: Allium.

Species: Allium tuberosum.

Garlic chives. In the picture, grown near to Alchemilla and Pot Marjoram.

Very mild, pleasant garlic flavour, I prefer them to the normal chives. Flowers in late summer are attractive both to myself and some pollinators. Said to be somewhat invasive self-seeders, but it's easy enough to deadhead if you want to, and after 3 years of growing them I've had no problems.
