Allium schoenoprasum 'Curly Mauve' offers a more ornamental take on the garden chive emerging with prostrate, curly leaves lifting into a Medusa-like swirl of twisting, blue-grey leaves before sending up pom poms of silvery lavender flowers. 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.
