Any one know the name of this plant

Wiltshire, United Kingdom Gb

On a visit to Monacute House I came across this plant. The leaves are similar to a Zonal Pelargonium. The flowers were small and maroon.




i think it is a hardy geranium i have noticed that some geraniums and pelagoniums have similar folage, maybe a pheam

Definitely Geranium phaeum - could be 'Samobor' with those leaf markings.
