How to get rid of butterfly vine, I believe is called trumpet.

Kristina FreemanNatalie TackettNancy Turner


This vine is destroying my house and sidewalk. I can't stop it and need it gone.
I'm sorry I planted it but thought beautiful butterflys. Vine has never blossomed.
It has been several years now.

    And it's very invasive. I cut mine back to the ground and them sprayed brush killer on the stubs. So far it has not resprouted.

    I would do the same thing. If there are other plants around it that you don't want sprayed, paint it on the stumps. If any more sprout do the same thing, cut it off and paint the stump. Do this until you see them no more. The weed killer should be drawn into the roots and kill it off.
