Caper Bush?

Recommended Posts

not 100% sure this is the right place, but i trust the powers that be will lead me in the right direction, if not.

here in so CA, we enjoy the wonderful mediterranean -esque climate, which is reflected in our gardens (and our roadsides---ever been stuck in freeway traffic, and noticed all the fennel growing just over there?) rosemary, check. bay trees, check. all the usual suspects seem to flourish here...except one. i've yet to find a caper bush, and now it's starting to bug me. in fact, i've never even seen a caper bush...or a caper flower, except a drawing on the trader joe's caper jar label. anybody got one? seen one? know where to get one? or why they aren't ubiquitous? inquiring mind...

So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money. But when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.

Check out you local nursery, they should have plants in soon. Here is Paso Robles we can grow olives fine, but we are just a bit too cold for capers.
