I think you are correct in your diagnosis and what a lovely centre that is, captured in fine detail and colours.

Very good macro shot like the center detail; and a lovely colour blue sets off the pollen on the stamens, reflecting the blue on the petals, nicely presented, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin.

Tradescantia Andersoniana 'Osprey' - to be exact (I think Tongue). I can see why those purple tassles attracted you. Lovely capture, Albert.
