If so can anyone ID this one for me? I bought it at a non-profit organization's plant sale today and it had no tag at all.

Thanks : )

Most probably P.caeruela, this is one of the hardiest and most often grown in temperate areas, nice flowers but fruits are just for birds...

caeruela means 'blue' in latin, so may be close to your bouquet...

My guess would be Caerulea as well, and maybe Caerulea 'Constance Elliott'

Definitely caeruela. Some leaves show symptoms of cholorosis, a lack of iron. You can correct it with iron chelate.
