    I would guess it doesn't come true from seed and has to be propagated vegetatively. There are a few Carex you can grow from seed tho.

    I would buy a plant and divide it with a knife into tiny rooted pieces, much faster.

    I have never seen ours self-seed.  It propagates really well from division.  It does much better in shade, and has more vibrant colour, although we have grown them in full sun.
