Durham, United Kingdom(Zone 8a)

another home-made pic, i'm afraid, i got told this was called a 'pincushion plant' by the man who sold me this yesterday, i can't find any info on it, can anyone give me a botanical name, all the pincushion plants are flowers, not like this help!! i really like it.. the orange circles are berries by the way, and the foliage is really small, it's only a small thing..

The pincushion is of the genus "Scabiosa".

Try searching for Scabiosa caucasica. http://www.perennialnursery.com/plantinfo/scabiosa.html

thanks for your help, dave, but it's not a flower, it's only 1 1/2 inches tall!! it's def not a scabious, that's what i kept finding when i searched, it has 1/2 cm orange waxy berries on tiny leaved foliage, help!!

Its a bead plant or more correctly Nertera granadensis.

Lilith, to me it looks like Baby Tears, I think the latin name is Helxine or something like that. It loves high humidity and will take over a terrarium.
