Doesn't look like Capparis grandis. In that plant, the leaves are
supposed to be 2-3 inches long and 1.5-2 inches wide - flowers are
supposed to be 1 inch across. So, clearly the flowers are supposed to
be smaller than the leaves. (unless my information is wrong) In
Geeta's picture, the flower is distinctly larger than the leaves
The only other caper I can think of is Capparis moonii
but the leaves of Geeta's plant do not agree well with C. moonii.
So, I would wait for inputs from others.
