      Can't wait to see if anyone has suggestions on this. We have trumpet vine popping up everywhere. It's amazing how fast this stuff grows, not to mention near impossible to get rid of! best of luck to you!!

    Boil a kettle or more of water and pour it only on the plants that you want to kill. Cut the new shoots down first. may need to do it a couple of times, as the deeper roots may not get the hot water. I too have Trumpet vine growing in the wrong place, This is what I did.

    I have had good success with non-selective herbicides, and "painting" the leaves on with a foam brush rather than spraying, to
    keep from getting it on other plants and the ground.
