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’
(Dwarf Red Powder Puff)

The flower bud that looks like a berry.
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.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
