How to eradicate invasive, domestic Morning Glory plants

The plants are encroaching from a neighboring yard. To date, I’ve tried digging, cutting, Round Up, boiling water, and a solution of salt and vinegar, but the plants still thrive.

The Morning Glory destroyed 80-year old camellia and rhododendron plants, and there is no end in sight. Can you suggest a method of permanently eradicating this unwanted interloper? I hope my neighbor loses his hair.
