Don't do it by seed or transplant. Unless you can contain it, it will be like the houseguest that never leaves.
I don't know what specific type I have. Mondo, monkey, lirope or other relatives. I 'borrowed' some from a neighbor to cover a nekkid spot in a side yard. It's taken over that area and turned the corner and is now happily invading the backyard. It is extremely hard to dig it up altho I'm working on it. This hot weather is slowing me down tho.
Maybe there's a variety that's not so wicked. Dunno.
