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.
