So I add my two words to the discussion. This isn't X. violaceum which I have for many years. X. violaceum has green, a little waxy upper side of leaves, when this plant in the photo has bluish leaf blades. X. violaceum has always violet petioles and the underside of leaves - this plant has not. Besides, the shape of the leaves doesn't resemble X. violaceum. They look rather like X. sagittifolium, maybe it even is a variety/cultivar of X. sagittifolium.
