The foliage and tubers of creeping bellflower are edible.  If you're desperate enough to eat parsnips, a similar taste, gnosh on this.  You might slow down the creep.  We recently had a gas pipeline come through west of town.  They took out a bunch of endangered cowslips and threatened toadshades, but managed to just miss this patch of bellflower.  Probably just as well.  They would have scattered the tubers and made it a bigger patch.
