    You sure that's U. livida? Looks more like sandersonii leaves to me, especially the blue form, and I have both species in multiple locations....

    Yeah I'm pretty sure it's livida. For reference, here are its flowers, which certainly help with the ID:



    Edit: As a side note, I actually asked for the plant's ID on this forum a couple years ago, and the conclusion was that this was a livida as well.

    Those are the most divergent livida leaves I've ever seen then... flower's a little different from the clones I have too, but they match close enough. Perhaps this is a Mexican form?

    Yeah, livida does seem to have a lot of variation within the species. It definitely could be a Mexican form after doing some research, although I'm not really a Utric connoisseur.

    Nice plants! I wish I could have been there. The rosea looks pretty big.
