Zygophyllum fabago

Zygophyllum fabago Syrian bean caper 


This plant was native to Asia, eastern Europe and Romania originally, but has now naturalised in Australia and north USA. It is considered a noxious weed, growing on acid soils and can grow to over 1m tall. The flower buds can be put in brine as used similar to capers. This photo was taken in Almería province, where it is now naturalised, also north Africa.
