Yes, chives make worthy garden plants. Allium schoenoprasum has attractive, dark green, tubular foliage and umbels of pale purple flowers during the summer. They are also excellent in containers. Shear them after the first round of bloom and they will regrow fresh leaves and rebloom.

Summer.  12 in. x 12 in.

Pale Purple flowers

Sun     Zones 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9
Like other members of the allium family, the scent and taste of both foilage and flowers is usually not favored by deer.
