What is this bush?

I'm sooooo not a green thumb kinda person... but this bush is kind of pretty and was here when we moved in. It's just on the side of my fence and it looks a bit wild and out of control. I don't know what it is, or what we should be doing for it. Does it need pruning or something? Does anybody know what it is or why most of it is a pretty purple kind of colour and then just that one tiny little part is green? It's flowering and looks nice but I have no idea what it is:shrug:.

Does it get berries after the blooming stops?

Check out this link (http://www.backyardgardener.com/plantname/pda_9148.html), and click the Google Plant Images link at the top for pics... Does it look anything like that?

I'm not sure if it gets berries or not... I didn't really notice last year, and it hasn't had any this year so far. It kind of looks like those pictures in the link, but not quite - I think I need to get a better picture of the blooms to tell, now I have all those pictures in my head and I can't quite remember:laughing:.
