Allium Schoenoprasum

Picture taken on a small island off Espoo. These plants are very common growing in rocky areas near the sea.

Chive plants look like the tops of tiny onion plants. Chives are grown for their leaves which have a mildly pungent flavor, not as strong as garlic or leeks, but more assertive than most common onions. Chives have tiny bulbs clustered on underground rhizomes. The leaves, 10-15 in (25-38 cm) tall, are cylindrical and hollow. Chives are perennial, and most years they produce little purple or lilac flowers in rounded umbels (clusters in which the flower stalks all arise from the same point).
