IN THE GARDEN

Q Years ago, I inadvert-ently got a start of creeping euonymus in some potted bushes or other potted ornamentals. I didn't mind it for a while, as it was attractive and not a problem. My mistake. Now, it is consuming my yard, and I'm getting so old I can't fight it. I've tried to spray it with broadleaf weed killer, and brush killer, but they barely turn a couple leaves a bit off color. Is there anything recommended to work on this nuisance? Or add to a spray to cut through the waxy leaf so it can absorb the herbicide?
