Ruby Tuesday

I found this pretty variegated plant in a garden I recently visited.
I'm not sure what it's called. Any ideas?
I love how the ruby red leaves are accented
by such a soft shade of green...

Sorry but I have no idea what it is called. But I like the Christmas-y look of it!

The leaves are so pretty. Is it a groundcover?

Beautifully bright and variegated leaves! The colouras remind me of a coleus but the leaf shape is a little different!

The leaves remind me of ivy. I wish I knew what it was because I'd love some in my garden.
Lovely!

Nice picture. It is a Fancy-leafed Geranium. Also called a Pelargonium. I love to put them in a container with other annuals. MB

It's a beautiful shot, Linnea. As Small City Scenes has just said, it's a geranium, which is properly called a pelargonium but for some reason we all call them geraniums. I have one very similar to this on the balcony.
