Round Up and Brush B Gon are contact herbicides so you'll want to keep these products off your desireable plants. I think the best approach is to cut them down and immediately paint the vegetation killer on the stubs. It will move down into the roots and kill them off. If anything resprouts repeat the cutting and painting of the stubs. Eventually you'll get control of these problem plants. Best wishes with your garden.
