Reminds me of Goethe's poem (set by Schubert) about the boy and the rose -

"But the youth, impatient, culled
Rose among the heather.
Rose stung sharply as he pulled
But her days, alas, were told;
Wounded both together."

Looks a bit like an osteospermum, Barbs, they are in flower here at present. Osteo leaves are very similar, but not usually so spikey. Carol
