Capperia sepiaria - Wild Caper Bush

Unread post by Marelize Keyter » Tue Aug 13, 2013 8:31 am

We camped in Satara last year somewhere between August and September.

I got really ill from sinus attacks due to a flowering bush near the caravan.

The past weekend my daughter visited friends in Hoedspruit area, encountered the same bush with the same results.

Can someone please identify the bush?

thanks

Hi Marelize,
You got me going and did a bit of research, this is the answer I got:
Dear Norman
This looks like one of the indigenous Capparis species (Family Capparidaceae), possibly Capparis sepiaria (wild caper bush).

Regards
Lesley

Hope that helps. :lol:
