    Capparis arborea. It's more commonly called the Native Pomegranate, but also Wild Lime or Wild Lemon.
    i tried to grow real capers but lost them in a 'Sydney wet'. They seem to like it very dry and well drained.
    This might be an alternative?

    I lost 3 out of 4 Capers to the white cabbage butterfly larvae.

    There's a few other native Capparis might be worth trying...I'll send you some seed if I find them.

    Thank you
    (Have you tried Dipel Bacillis thungerensis (sp?) or 1/2 eggshells to repel CWMB?)
    I'm not sure how they would survive the big wet we are having on the E. Coast.
    I had to bring my sage in out of the rain!
