Wednesday's Flower


Wednesday's Story

A bit of a contradiction…

I’m a pretty flower, but I have a pungent smell.
I have hollow stalks, but stand strong in the wind.
I’m edible, but have insect-repelling properties.
I’m not only from the old world, but the new world, too.

points of interest

Chives have edible, cylindrical, hollow, dark green leaves that are pungent when crushed. Dense, round umbels of up to 30 bell-shaped, pale purple flowers appear in April-May in warmer climates and in June in cooler ones. Flowers are also edible and make a lovely garnish. Single bulbs produce clusters of offset bulbs, gradually forming clumps. Grow in front of a border, herb or rock garden.

general care

Grow in fertile, well-drained soil in full sun. Plant in autumn, 2-4” deep. Keep dry when dormant. Easier to propagate by division than by seed.

friday’s flower fact

Chives are the only allium that is native to both the new and old worlds and is useful to control garden pests because of their insect-repelling properties.
