But this looks like neither of them from what I've been told. Maybe someone can ID this for me.

Here are a few more photos. I went out and tied it up to a dowel rod this afternoon. The leaves are waxy feeling.

It sure is interesting but I don't know what it is and I'll be curious to hear what it turns out to be. It kinda, sorta reminds me of my Blue Glory Vine (Thunbergia battiscombei)

Sort of but not quite Lin. Looking at the leaf it's kind of heart shaped.

Thumbs up Just thought it looked square and it would narrow the search.

Good thought Sandi. I have no idea what it is. It appears to have two buds on it, I think. But it could also be new leaves.
