My chives are doing well, strong and disease free. But they are not flowering! Could mine be a late flowering variety? Is there such a thing? Or maybe a non-flowering variety? Thanks.
I live in a pretty far northern climate, and decided I hated the natural prairie grass landscaping that came with my house. Traditional chives and "Chinese/garlic" chives now dominate the front of my house.
It is now July, and the traditional chives have been blooming round purple flowers since mid-June.
The flatter-leaved, "garlic" chives generally don't flower until late August and September for me, with multiple, delicate-looking white flowers.
If your chives are more flat-leaved with a bit of a garlicky taste to them, then they probably are the later-blooming variety.
