What is this vine? Is it aggressive?

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.
