What is this garden flower?

Please, help me with the name of this garden flower. Seems it blooms only in the morning, and then during the day I don’t see the flowers but just the buds. The flowers have three petals, violet and quite small.  Flower stamens are yellow. The leaves are long, probably the type of Tradescantia? 

Thank you!

    This is a Tradescantia, also known as a Spiderwort. Usually it flowers in the morning and on cloudy days, but when the sun shines the flowers close. I love this plant and grow it in my garden! 🙂
