Description for Three Leaved Caper

Caper is a spiny, trailing, deciduous shrub native to the Mediterranean. The Hebrew word for Caper is tapher which actually means desire. Capers are found in Jerusalem and around Nazareth and are offered as a sort of Hors d oeuvre to stimulate the appetite or to increase the desire to eat.

Common name Flower colours Bloom time Height Difficulty
Crataeva, Varuna yellowish- white December to April 2 m easy to grow

Planting and care

Caper bush likes hot summer temperatures and low humidity, apparently the leaves will sometimes develop odd pock marks on the surface if the humidity it too high. But it’s also very frost hardy, growing happily down to Zone 7. In cold climates (less than minus 10ºC = 15ºF) you can grow them in a pot and bring them inside during the winter. Caterpillars are the main pest threat, especially during summer.

Caring for Three Leaved Caper

    Feed plants only sparingly; overfertilization can cause stems to break in the fall. You can add diluted fertilizer into the water, though avoid getting the fertilizer near the plant’s base; it may help to build a moat in a circle around the plant about 18 inches out.
