Chives Garlic New Belt is an attractive perennial closely related to common Chives but with a mild garlic, rather than onion flavour. The blossom is a flat headed spray of star shaped flowers that faintly smell of roses, the plant grows into a clump, instead of a single bulb, and forms many tubers on a horizontal rootstock. Chinese herbalists recommend this species of Allium for the treatment of various ailments.
Adaptable to most garden soils but prefers an open sunny position, drought and frost resistant.
