Chives are a perennial herb and member of the onion family that have edible flowers. Common chives have clumps of small, slender bulbs that produce thin, tubular, blue-green leaves. They are considered a cool-season crop, which means that they grow best in the spring and fall. The harsher temperatures of summer usually cause them to go dormant until cool weather arrives again.
