It's in my lilly garden, wraps itself around the tall plants and latches onto the fence.

This might be white morning glory or a related plant in the morning glory family. https://www.marylandbiodiversity.com/viewSpecies.php?species=2408

Have you see the plant produce flowers? There are cultivated morning glories that reseed easily, and there are weeds in the morning glory family that look similar. There is variation in the leaf shapes, which can make it a challenge to determine the exact species. If you have a flower, that can help with identification.

The best way to remove these would be to hand pull or dig them out, before they go to seed.
