Kindly identify this herb with purple flowers photographed in Sikkim in May 2015.
spiderwoart a Tradescantia.
closest i can think of because of the tallish wide grass like blades  and the color is T. virgininiana

Apparently seems to be Tradescantia virginiana. 
Commonly grown as ornamental.

Seen this herb in a Home garden at Leh.
Could this be Tradescantia congesta ? (Family: Commelinaceae)..
Liked the 5th one most. Marvelous details.
