I download the photo to check the focus point,  but can't find it.
Is the image you posted cropped?
How far is the camera from the flower?
Was the camera in auto focus or did you focus manually?
The absence of focus point suggests the camera is not in Auto focus
and the focus is set perhaps 6 inches short of the flower.
I tried to sharpen the pistils  (bellow)

Why use f/1.4,  are you after creating bokeh
I have several lenses to choose from for this kind of shot.
But with a 50mm, I use f/4 of f/5.6 at roughly 18" to 20" from the camera.
