This is mixed in a bed with vinca minor, I just recently realized that its a different plant. There is also a clump growing alone that is almost bush like. It is evergreen, sends up shoots that stand 8-12" above the vinca minor and will grow up a tree but doesn't seem to cling.

Could be a Euonymus, possibly fortunei.

It does look like Euonymus fortunei: Purple Wintercreeper Euonymus (Euonymus fortunei 'Coloratus')

Personally, I would get rid of the vinca as well.
Both are invasive exotics.
There's a lot of really cool plants that you can plant in that bed once the invasives are gone...

Ha, maybe that's why the owners sold the house. They wanted to get away from the invasives!
