A beautiful wild flower in Mt. Arayat: Capparis micracantha or salimbagat

I would think this flower will be frequently found in gardens as it looks like a relative of cats whiskers, but this plant is actually wildcrafted. It was photographed in a trek to Mt. Arayat Pampanga by Dr. Ernesto Adorio, Mr.Allan Carlos and Mr. Joseph Nuqui. Yet this flower is listed in StuartXchange and reputed to have anti-cancer and anti-tuberculosis properties.
