Any beneficial value? It grows like a weed so I think it could be good to use it, since its at least visually pleasing.

Yep, that's bellflower. The bees adore it. Not sure what else it might be good for besides that and being beautiful.

It's a bi-annual, low rosette of leaves the first year and flowers the second year. I had a bunch of small 2nd year plants growing on a trail I was about to mow this spring. Transplanted them easily into a native flower bed and they are flowering beautifully this month.
 
What's brown and sticky? ... a stick. Or a tiny ad.
