Chives grow in clumps and have grass-like leaves and pink or purple flowers that will pop up between 12-14 inches tall. This makes for a nice accent plant interspersed throughout the garden, used much like you would an ornamental grass. The flowers will attract bees and the onion smell has been known to repel some pests. These plants can act as a protective border for other plants, blocking out the enemy and inviting friendly bees in.
