Caper flowers

The surprising flowers
June 25, 2011

Near my house there's a caper plant, sometimes I check it to compare it to the -much smaller-one I am growing in my rooftop.

CapersCapers are the plant buds.

If allowed to flower the plant produces large flowers with white petals and long purple stamens that looks like a firework.

I bringed home two flowers to took some pictures.
