Chives look much like tall clumps of grass. (In fact, the alliums are closely related to grass.) Chives can be snipped and used from the garden as needed. Chives also add a mild onion flavour to soups, salads, and dips. Garlic chives (Allium tubersosum), also known as Chinese chives or Oriental chives, are a separate species. They can be used in much the same way for cooking, however, and are good as a mild garlic substitute.
