This Isn't the Color It Was Supposed To Be

You buy a young potted plant at your local garden center that is not yet in bloom. The tag in the pot pictures a beautiful blue-colored flower. Much to your later dismay, the flowers aren't blue at all, but a purplish lavender. What gives?

Is there a dominant color in the flowers oft this plant that may influence other plants of the same variety? I had bought a collection of angel trumpet plants ( pink, white, yellow) and all turned out to be yellow. Then recently I bought a couple more and I'm hoping they do not turn out yellow. Either I was given the incorrect plants or something is happening genetically. Any suggestions?
