Chives are super easy to grow, require little maintenance, tolerate drought, and come back year after year. Edible flowers are loved by bees, look and taste great in salads, and dry well for arrangements. Foliage and/or flowers add a subtle onion flavor to foods. Great for containers, and can be grown indoors for year-round harvest. Deer resistant.
