Cappardaceae, Capparis cartilaginea, Shafallah, Lasaf, Kabar, Oman, Southern Coast
Shafallah is a perennial shrub found growing prostrate or scrambling, typically in rocky ground and out of rock cliffs.
The floral buds are presumably pickled and eaten as capers. I’m looking for more information.
This is one of a series of photographs from an island off the southern coast of Oman. A reader ID’d this one for me, for which I am very apprciative.
If you read this post and know of resources regarding flora of the Arabian Peninsula, I would be very interested in any info. See “Oman” category for more photos of plants in the region.
