Product information "Allium schoenoprasum 'Forescate'"

In contrast to the previously described chive varieties, purple-flowered chives have bright purple/burgundy flower balls. Purple-flowered chives are a herbaceous perennial plant with up to 30 cm long, tubular, dark green leaves. Actually, it is a bulb plant, which is vegetatively propagated by daughter bulbs. Thereby chives form clumps with time. Chives prefer sunny to semi-shady locations with calcareous, humus-rich, moist, clay soil that is rich in nutrients. The plant finds use in herb gardens, in borders and perennial beds or as a bed enclosure. A chive hedge along a path is also very attractive. Chives can be versatilely used in the kitchen and these chives have a much higher ornamental value than ordinary chives.
