I've just taken on an allotment and I am unable to identify a plant that is growing on my plot.

I think it's a creeper, it has a very thick red smooth approx. 1.5 - 2 m long stems with leaves coming off it at intervals. The leaves are very feathery green with a red edge.

Here is a picture of a leaf.

 I hope someone can help...

Thanks

It looks a bit like one of the herbaceous clematis - I think there is one with leaves a bit like that but can't remember it's name - is it possible to see a picture of the whole plant?

Could be one of those thornless blackberries. The red stems would fit with that.
