| 1 answered question

 Allium schoenoprasum. Chives are native to regions in Asia and Europe. This Chive cultivar is common in the U.S. and is a different type than its relative Chinese Chive variety, which is also called “Garlic Chive.” Among the many vitamins chives provide, they also contain choline—a calming nutrient that helps with sleep. As one of the prolific “fines herbes” of cooking, chives are easy to grow from seed during the cool season, but also do well in temperate climates as hardy perennial herbs.
