Allium senescens. Also known as Ornamental Broadleaf Onion, this unusual Allium is popular in the Pennsylvania Dutch Country for its ramp-like flavor and green seeds. The unripe seeds are used to flavor omelets, cooking oil, and even crock pickles. The beautiful flowers are also excellent when infused in vinegar. Excellent as an addition to stir-fries.

Garlic Chives bloom in August and will self-seed once established. Treat as a perennial ideal for border areas of the kitchen garden. Germination 91%.  30 seeds per packet.
