Notes:

This little vine comes back every spring and never has had any flowers on it. I do plant a lot of perennials so I’m not sure if its something from the local greenhouse or just a weed. This is the 3rd year its returned so it really has me curious if I’m just nursing a weed. I have looked and looked on line at many plant identifier websites and no luck. I sure hope someone recognizes it so the mystery is solved. Thank you.

    Looks like a passion vine. I don’t know why yours wouldn’t have bloomed. Perhaps it’s a pollination thing. Your passion vine is just a little frigid. Anyway, once you see the flowers you’ll understand the passion thing. The fruit it produces gains the plant another moniker: Maypop. http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/showimage/266176/

    I agree with Bobby. I think it’s a Passion Flower vine also.
    I remember my cousin showing me how the different parts of the flower represent the Passion of Christ when I was 7. Never left me.

    I suspect clematis.

    I have a passion fruit vine too down here in Savannah. The vine has flourished the last two summers but very few flowers. Maybe two this entire summer. Never seen a single pod however.
