Answer: Capers are the unopened buds of the plant Capparis spinosa. It's native to the Mediterranean climates and should grow well in your region. It's a deciduous shrub with a sprawling growth habit and white 2-3 inch flowers with lavender stamens. The flowers open at dawn and close by mid-afternoon.
