Propagating phototina

Hello fellow gardeners, has anyone propagated phototina and how do I do it?  Can I just stick a cutting into the ground where I want it to grow? Or am I just being lazy ! 

What is this pesky plant/weed/tree?

Pottering about, I do not "presume" nor have the "right to" anything but believe me I can have my opinion ! if I "had the right to" then I would be telling said people off and as I'm not that type of person I do not. All  I can do .... Is try to keep mine nice and avoid looking at eyesores around me Or paved over gardens ! The paved gardens (and further to the discussions on this post - meaning fully paved over) bug me due to ugliness and potential for flooding. I am here merely having a chit chat on a gardening forum!

That's a very good point boater, tis a conundrum ! I suppose that if it was reasonably nice flagging / hardcore it would be more acceptable than the trash filled jungles lol. I have one of those next door but one and I HATE looking at it aargh...... O dear, no happy answer is there
