Description: Wild Chives are moisture loving edible wildflowers that prefer a sunny location. The blooms start out a vibrant violet and slowly fade with age but the shape is retained as the plant goes into seed. Chives also make good cut-flowers and will freely seed themselves about.

Found in Nature: Moist to Wet open sunny sites, banks and shores.

Distribution: Not Common - Rocky Mountains, Boreal Forest

Notes: Available as larger potted stock - pick up only.
