Allium schoenoprasum f. albiflorum
Common Name: Garden Chives Family: Amaryllidaceae (The Amaryllis Family)

Allium schoenoprasum f. albiflorum is the white form of garden chives. It produces masses of pure white, star shaped flowers gathered in luxuriantly blooming umbels, suspended over clumps of hollow, cylindrical, grass-like leaves. This allium makes a choice addition to the herb garden as well as a strongly ornamental and effective companion to plants troubled by many types of pests. Few plants can offer the unique flower forms of ornamental onions.
