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.

Does it get berries after the blooming stops?

Check out this link, 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.
