Capparis lasiantha (Bush Caper)

This scrambling plant is a common shrub that produces large, delicate, white fragrant flowers. The pickled flower buds of its European relative, known as capers, are regarded as a delicacy. The fruits are soft and pulpy and full of seeds. Birds such as the Red-winged Parrot eat the fruits and distribute the seeds widely.
