Hey Mitch, I think you are right! After looking around a bit I think it is tradescantia virginiana
I have two other different spiderworts but did not recognize this one because it looks different structurally and has the long leaves.The bees are really loving it right now.
Thanks for the help Mitch.
 
please buy this thing and then I get a fat cut of the action:
