Soil Type - Well drained, sandy loam
Height - 1 1/2 ft.
Chives will thrive in sandy loose soil and tolerate prolonged dry periods. Unless you want Chives everywhere in the garden the flowers should be deadheaded. When the plants start to look 'messy' cut them back to about ground level and they will grow back.
Both the foliage and flowers make a good addition to a salad but don't try picking mine.
This is certainly an Allium. Beyond that I have my doubts. A gift plant with only a common name. The leaves are strap like but the flower color is definitely not snow white. The leaves are stiff, curling, and flat.
No one who tasted this plant was reminded of garlic.
