What is this vine? Is it aggressive?

tvrolyk(z5 NorthIL)September 1, 2007

My neighbor grows this vine and it self seeds on my side of the fence. The flower is pretty but I wanted to know what it is. It keeps starting up where I have a clematis started but grows much faster and I want to make sure it isn't too aggresive or invasive.

tvrolyk, it is a common MG, and although it seeds itself like mad, It can easily be pulled out. Try to get all the little starts,if you don't want it choking out your clematis. :) Arum

Looks like MG to me--pretty, but invasive.
