Jane, that mystery plant is still, after its image has been viewed over a thousand times by people on several forums and listservs internationally, a mystery. If it's an Akebia, it does not really match any of the species I've seen. 
And Carlo, the parthenocissus you so long to grow is not for us here on the East Coast, at least not in USDA zone 7. It has disappeared more than once from my garden. It might be possible coddled near a wall, but it's not a plant for the open garden.
