Hi all!

My Dad took some cuttings of a plant that successfully took root. But he isn't sure what it is called. The stem and leaves slightly resemble a geranium but not exactly. I wasn't able to get a picture of it flowering but he says the blooms are light pink in color and come up in a small cluster but they only have 2 or 3 petals each about an inch across.

Any ideas what it is?

Thanks :)

It looks like a Geranium.

to me, that looks like some kind of begonia.

Yes, I would think Begonia too.

I think we got the nail on the head. My dad said he was thinking it was a Begonia bit figured they were just an outdoor plant. But he's confident that we got it right.

Thanks everyone :)

Yeah, I should have enlarged the pictures. That stem is not a geranium stem. I vote Begonia too.
