Capers are an Italian gourmet favorite commonly used in Mediterranean cuisine. Purple-white blooms on the bush produce the caper and can be harvested after the flower bloom is spent. A fabulous crossover plant that can be used in traditional cutting gardens, kitchen gardens and easily grown in patio containers. Caper plants are heat loving and thrive in the summer months in zones 8 to 11. Although a perennial, it can be grown as a seasonal annual. 65 days. Packet: 50 seeds.
