I have vinca ground cover all over my front hill and rear. Chickweed has invaded in mass. Is there a weed killer that I can use that will not kill the vinca?

Pulling the Chickweed up by hand is the safe method of removal.

Though herbicides with Glyphosate will kill the Chickweed, it is not selective and will kill everything else it hits.
