Could be variegated Bigroot geranium. Are the flowers magenta?

In the 3rd picture there is a bit of mauve pink/ fuchsia color on the leave, I think that is what's left of the bloom.

You might struggle with this one, there has been a named hardy Geranium with mottled leaves some years ago here but I don't remember the name.

There is one with leaves like this called Geranium yoshinoi 'Confetti', and of course there's a lot of those which look different ..

Looks a lot like 'Yoahinoi Confetti' to me, more photos for comparison:

Another possibility, perhaps, is
Geranium (Geranium thunbergii 'Jester's Jacket')

@Chelle - any opinion on an ID for this Geranium?

Jester's Jacket is the one I couldn't recall, but as I remember it was supposed to have some pink splashes in the leaves.

Translated ..

Geranium thunbergii 'Jester's Jacket' comes from a sowing G. thunbergii, a species native to Japan with small white flowers and leaves marked brown. This highest form of 20 cm is often confused with G. yoshinoi 'Confetti' but it is probably from the same plant. The foliage of this geranium is remarkable, green splashed with cream and pink. In summer, small pale pink flowers appear on long trailing stems. In our garden, it grows geranium bordering massive part shade along with the delicate cyparissias Euphorbia 'Fens Ruby'.

I can take a photo of Jester's Jacket today for comparison, but I doubt it'll be conclusive. BBL Smiling

Looks like Geranium yoshinoi 'Confetti'. It's not a big flowering plant, just a few here and there. The flower color is right in the pictures.

Geranium yoshinoi 'Confetti', I think it matches the closest. I bought this at a plant sale at the Miller Library horticultural center a few years ago, when I go this spring I will look for this again.

Nope, I was just being nosey. I type so slowly I was probably still typing when you had already told everyone the answer. *Blush* I couldn't tell which plant you decided it was. Thumbs up
