Thanks camila. In a way that is true, however, just the small white flower is the actual flower. The purple bits are the flower bracts, though in my mind they are almost nicer and more showier than the flower itself. Here is another I spotted with fruit.

Such an odd-looking flower. It looks like a flower within a flower.
