Package says chives but it does not look like chives.
That’s not chives. Might be some variety of basil…
Not chives of any kind. Is that insect damage on the leaves or speckles? If you could get a clearer image it would help to identify the plant you do have.
I’ve heard that plant called “Poor Man’s Coleus.” I also know from experience that it is invasive and spreads via seeds. I made the mistake of planting some a few years ago and am still fighting the darn things coming up every year!
