Invasive Vine ID #2

This invasive vine swallows a flower bed area at a clients house of mine. It seems every 2-3 weeks they call me and want me to come pull more weeds. Their backyard is downhill from a overgrown wooden area. The beds are about 160 sq ft long and I fill up 2 large trash bags each time I go weed for them. It's all mainly this weed. They are hard to pull out of the ground and have a very thick root.

Is it possible these are sucker type growths coming up from the root systems of the nearby trees?

That looks like a trumpet vine. Very hard or near impossible to get rid of.

Thanks Larry, I'm pretty sure it's not Trumpet Vine though. Any other suggestions?

Hmm, well maybe you guys are right then. This location is only partial sun so maybe that explains why there are no flowers?

I've only seen flower's on trumpet vine's that were massive. Those thing's are super hard to kill, spraying the leave's with roundup won't do it, you have to cut the vine close to the ground and treat the cut with roundup concentrate immediately.
