Probably off topic, but I need help: mystery plant

The venation looks a little like Schisandra, but the habit or lack of vines going up would be odd. Otherwise I would say Pachysandra axillaris. Any pictures of rhizomes, inflorescence, etc.?

Thanks, Nathan.I agree that Parthenocissus quinquefolia is a very good guess: I've been trying to make it a Virginia creeper variant since I first saw it. I've searched some century-old books for information about Virginia creeper cultivars without luck. I've made up names (Parthenocissus quinquefolia truncata, P. quinquefolia obtusifolia and others) to search the literature - but so far no luck.
And note that the mystery plant does not have serrated edges to the leaves. 
Please keep trying.
