Purchased this one at the local market and gifted it to a friend for Christmas (it was hard to part with, believe me!;) This one took a little longer than the one I kept but she's putting them up now! We are both officially in LOVE with our newest plant family!) Sticking tongue out
I've been thinking it was PATINA but now that I can see the bloom it just doesn't fit. It looks different than images that I have found on reference sites. The leaves are more more saw-toothed, stems are dark red and the depth of the purple is very intense along with the very distinct yellow paths inside the throat of the flower.

Anyone have any ideas?)

i can't see the veining on the leaves very clearly, but they seem to have lighter striped fan like areas.
and very serrated edge.
it looks like Primulina 'Dianne Marie' to me. see below
