Anyone know what this plant is?

I have a large one in front of my house and it seems to grow quite enthusiastically so thought I might put it all down the side of the house.

I'm not much of a gardener. How would I take cuttings from it and plant it somewhere else? I'm told I have 'terrible soil'.

Idiots guide please.

Thanks. Soph.

Maybe a geranium; I cant quite see tbh.

Looks lovely though

A picture of leaf closeup and flower closeup will really be needed to confirm.

Anyone else got any ideas?

Geranium endressi is my best bet

Yeah definately not Geranium with those leaves;
I reckon it is Lavatera as breakfast said

Looks exactly like this one on here....

Definitely Mallow/Lavatera (I think they're the same thing!)
