What is this plant?

I love the red leaves on this plant but can't work out what it is - is it a clematis? Or some sort of ivy?

    really nice plant, if you keep on top of it, however give it and inch and it'll take your full fence and half your house!

    Ah yes that’s it - thanks! It’s in my parents garden and I love the colours but my mum kept saying it was a clematis which is why I was struggling to find it in my searches online. As it happens I have a very long, dull fence that could do with some cheering up image

  • Thanks for narrowing it down Bushwacker - yes that's definitely the one! I think it looks more delicate/refined than the standard Virginia Creeper - and apparently it's less vigorous too which is not a bad thing...!  image
