And how do I kill it? Appears to be immune to Pramitol and Glyphosate.

I don't recognize it. Have you tried just pulling it up?

Appears to be a type of Euonymus. Dig it up, pull it out.

It's all over the place. Otherwise I would have used physical force. Other plants have already died from the Pramitol/Glyphosate combo, but this thing is totally unaffected. Can they be immune? The only other thing I can try to buy is 2,4-D. What do you think?

There was a huge Euonymus in exactly the wrong place in my yard. One day I smiled at the young man who was visiting next door. He happened to be carrying a chainsaw at the time. Even at age 67, I guess I still have the right smile. Whistling (Okay, maybe I just look like a helpless old woman. *Blush* )
No more Euonymus! The young man even carried the plant to the curb for me.

I started a few cuttings from the original plant and will share them at the local swap for anyone who might want to invite this plant into their yard and garden. Thumbs up

It looks like a variety of Euonymus to me also, possibly Winter Creeper (Euonymus fortunei) which is considered a pest plant in many areas, including N.J.: http://www.njisst.org/fact-she...
