Plant Description

Butterflies love the pretty round lavender-pink flower clusters! This shorter version of common chives is just under a foot tall. Grassy gray-green foliage is finely textured and upright, topped with blooms from late spring to early summer. Its shorter height makes it a great choice for containers.
