Native to Central Asia. Nowadays it also thrives in Southern France, Spain, Italy, Greece and other warm countries. The caper bush is a shrub growing to a height of about 1 metre and has long, overlapping twigs. The leaves are of blue-green colour, oval and slightly fleshy. They are able to store water and can withstand temperatures of up to 40°C easily. The roots are very hard and salt-tolerant. The caper bush even thrives in areas close to the sea. Because of its large, white flowers and long stamens, the plant is looking quite exotic.
