Thanks for the various responses. It seems like the closest match would 
be the Pelargonium Triste although it does not seem to be as tall as 
mine is.

who ever has rights to update the wiki, feel free to use the photos on 
the wiki. Once the plant has more leaves I will post a more overall photo.
