Im sure its a hop-Humulus lupulus. There is a variety called Aureus with bright green leaves. In autumn it sometimes produces hops (cheers!) Beware its a rampant climber, good for covering something quick but tends to grab hold of surrounding plants and throttle them. Just keep cutting it back to where you want it. If you look on my pics there is one behind the red poppy.

i borrowed the root stock from a "Large " house i was working @ forgot what i had taken & wondered if i had re-planted in the wrong place
