We have a voracious Chinese Wisteria, and sometimes it gets ahead of us. Suddenly it makes an appearance in our Juniper border 20' away, and here's how we safely deal with it. A variation of this technique can be used on Ailanthus.

Do you think this would work on a huge jasmine, and would it kill the whole plant? (E.g., a huge 10ftx6ft monstrosity)....I really hate this thing!

If you separate the source and the target plant, yes it will work. I cut about 6"s out of the feeder root of mine. If you do not cut a separation it will feed back and kill the host.
