Fruit explosion

To spread the seeds, this plant opens the fruits (size: 1 cm) in this way. Looks similar to a firework display, or? :)

 

Too bad, I don't know the name of the plant - maybe someone can help identify it. The pic was taken in a greenhouse (Botanical garden), with other mediterranean plants (south Europe, Canary Islands, Madeira...).
