Hi Debbie. The plant is chives (allium) and the plant produces flowers about 2 times a year. The flowers last about 3 - 4 weeks and it's usually in bloom in May/June and then again in the fall it throws up a few more flowers. I have planted 3 plants in a group together (about 12" apart) to form a nice large clump. They grow very quickly and I think I started with small plants in 4" containers. The plant is edible...mild onion flavour.

I hope this helps!

Marianne Lipanovich added this to Feast Your Eyes on Edible Gardens
Even a small space can be filled with a vegetable or ornamental mix. Chives in full flower surround planters filled with flowering plants and grasses. The colors of the planters and the chives play off one another, while chartreuse foliage provides a bit of contrast.
