Potato Bush (Lycianthes rantonnetii) - can it regrow from the roots (not runners/suckers)?

I'm currently trying to remove a couple stray Potato Bush (Lycianthes rantonnetii) plants from my backyard. They are transplants/descendants from a hedge I have have with my neighbor. While I enjoy them as a hedge plant, I'm trying to remove the transplants to make room for some other plants I'd liek to have grtowing in its place.

I've managed to remove the runners and the main root balls of two plants, but there are some subterranean roots (mainly the tap roots) that are still buried very deep in the ground. Does anyone know if it's possible for Potato Bush to regrow from its severed roots (not the suckers)?

Thank you!
