The Allure of Alliums

Alliums like garlic and onions are very important vegetables; without them, food and medicine wouldn’t be what they are today.

Native to the Himalayas, garlic chives are known for their mild garlic and chive flavors and beautiful flowers, which attract several kinds of small butterflies. Be sure to harvest before the seeds ripen, or they may spread into a large patch in your garden.
