Chives - did I get the right ones

I bought a wok from the wokshop.com and I thought I would get a bit better at stir frying.
I never knew that chives are different than green onion, always thought it's the same thing.
So today for first time I saw chives in chinese store and got them. However these ones have root cut off, and have some flower on the tip, the label says Flowering Chive Bud.
I also saw other ones when getting out of the market labeled Chives and they had no root and nothing on the tip, looked like green onion wiout a root.

Do both of these are the same, just a differet variation of a plant ? I want to stir fry, and also wokshop says to stir fry chives to season the wok.
Attaching photo, hope you can see it.
