My red pom-pom

From a bud into a full bloom pom-pom flower…. I captured these shots a few days ago. – C.E. Pereira

Does anyone know the name of this flower?

Thanks to smzang my red pom-pom is called: CALLIANDRA HAEMATOCEPHALA ‘NANA’

The petals emerging from one of the pods. Even the ants stopped and posed for me. An awesome sight.

The flower in full bloom. Such a pretty spiky “pom-pom”. Next to it is the flower bud that looks like a berry. I look forward for it to bloom.
