Please share the RAW Photo...

Agree with that - firstly, I don't think the colour we see is the right colour of the flower you had in front of you. It's not your fault: some purple pansy, African violets and petunia  flowers are very difficult to photograph (in particular with digital cameras) due to colour being in proximity (at the edge) of UV part of the spectrum. These colours easily get clipped as well. Sometimes with some cameras the correction will kick in (purple fringing) and the weird things happen.

Like with the bright red flowers (which tend to get clipped), experimenting with exposure and heavy PP in raw developing is the only way to get colours close to what they looked in nature: our eyes are still the best sensor out there.....
