This plant is invasive but it can be controlled with constancy and persistence.

Here is information from one of the best resources available:http://www.nps.gov/plants/alien/fact/faja1.htm
As it mentions, to be sure that the herbicide adheres to the leaf well, mix a surfactant with the herbicide. (It makes it stickier.)
