Tried to dig, pull and cut vine. Keeps coming up in yard and flower beds. Afraid it will creep under swimming pool liner. Help.

It is hard to get rid of hummingbird vines, also known as trumpet vine. The methods in this article should help:

You will not be able to stop it from sending shoots up unless you kill it completely. If you plan on killing it, using a paintbrush to immediately paint the fresh cuts of the remaining roots or suckers with Roundup will help to kill the vine and using a paintbrush will guarantee that the surrounding plants are not harmed by overspray from the chemical.
