Possibly.... good find I think... I got it out of the $10 mini phal section at a local nursery.
Botanical blue is the name given to the "blue" we see in plants that can't produce blue.
Like how blue phals are actually varying shades of lavender or purple. None of them are blue... but it's the bluest your gonna get from a flower that can't make blue.
