Caper Bush Potted Plants For Sale Online | (Culinary)


The caper bush is best known for pickled green delicacies used in French, Mediterranean and Indian dishes, made from its unopened flower buds. Capparis spinosa is a bush producing edible flowers that you'll harvest and brine before the blossoms pop open. If you let the plant flower, blossoms are a real treat! They're a bit like single form roses, and edible fruit, known as caper berries, will eventually develop.

Caper shrubs make unusual and attractive ornamentals that flower in their second or third year and will live for decades, steadily producing more buds and berries. These plants thrive in hot, dry environments and prefer full sun. Extremely drought tolerant, caper bushes are found throughout Greece and Italy growing out of the sides of ancient buildings! 

Developed blooms are highly attractive to butterflies. Salt tolerant, and deer resistant too. This plant is self pollinating so, no need for female and male plant.
