From what I can discover, this is a hybrid variegated geranium. I did find another picture of one with the same leaves, but was unable to find the exact name. Maybe look up "Pelargonium". Here is a link that may help you with the care of your plant. http://www.bhg.  annual/geranium/

BTW, It is beautiful! Good luck!

Very nice looking plant. It would difficult to tell you if it is an indoor or outdoor plant as we do not know where you live but the following information should answer your question.

I do not believe it is a Coral Bell as the leaves seem to be more curved and less defined in shape.

I have a lot of different coleus plants and keep looking for more but I have not seen coleus with more than one point leaves (not several as this photo shows) but then I have not seen them all.

I really believe it is in what many people refer to as Fancy Leaf Geraniums and I do think these have not been around as long as our regular geraniums so they may be more rare and are really difficult to find in my normal shopping area (at least for me).

I am pretty certain that your plant may be a Pelargonium Vancouver Centennial and I would really like to have some cuttings!! Then I found out that a Pelargonium may be in the geranium family but is not the same at all. One difference - Geraniums can take frost but Pelargoniums cannot (true annuals?).

Sorry, I got carried away with this plant and have several sites listed, but each one has something different so check anyone you like but the last link has information on caring for this plant. Most important - "perennial geraniums will come back each year and zonal geraniums, those now classified as Pelargonium, are topical perennials usually grown as annuals and so your plant is an annual".
