Chives is the common name of Allium schoenoprasum, an edible species of the Allium genus. A perennial plant, it is widespread in nature across much of Europe, growing to 30–50 cm tall. The flowers are pale purple, and star-shaped with six petals. The seeds are produced in a small, three-valved capsule, maturing in summer. The herb flowers from April to May. Chives are grown for their scapes, which are used for culinary purposes as a flavoring herb, and provide a somewhat milder flavor than those of other Allium species.

The medicinal properties of chives are similar to those of garlic, but weaker, the faint effects in comparison with garlic are probably the main reason for their limited use as a medicinal herb. They also have mild stimulant, diuretic, and antiseptic properties. Chives are cultivated both for their culinary uses and their ornamental value, the violet flowers are often used in ornamental dry bouquets.
