Why shouldn´t Campanula Glomerata Alba selfseed, and why is this not a recommended propagation method?

Hi, Adele,
It's all a matter of preference but it is recommended to shear back after flowering so you get a second flush of flowering rather than seed production. Also, Campanula glomerata 'Alba' , when grown in ideal conditions, can self-seed freely, becoming rather weedy and invasive (again, this is a matter of opinion amongst gardeners).

Thank you for your answer, Kathy C. 'Invasive' sounds attractive at the moment, as I would love to mature my garden quickly. Does it spread in its own location, or does it pop up in other parts of the garden as well?
Will Campanula Glomerata Alba come true from seed, or is there a chance of change in colour?
