It's beautiful, love how the edges are slightly darker than the rest of the flower and the pretty yellow of the stamens is a lovely contrast.
Such pretty little blooms!
While this is indeed a Tradescantia species it is not T. ohiensis. If you look closely you can see the flowers in this image have hairy sepals. T. ohiensis has hairless sepals. This could be either T. bracteata (glandular hairs, plant does not branch) or T. occidentalis (not glandular hairs, plant branches). This is just another example of needing more than a flower image to correctly ID a species.
