Yah, Loriope seems to do very well in shade. I have had some in my back yard for a few years now in full shade.

As for erosion, I agree that it's probably not the BEST thing and it wouldn't prevent erosion as well as a groundcover would. BUT, that being said, any plant or shrub prevents erosion compared to a hillside with nothing on it. And long term, Loriope spreads like crazy. It almost becomes like a groundcover in itself. I had some in my front yard I finally had to remove because it was just becoming a thick mat of little loriopes everywhere. They seem to easily replicate and fill in pretty well. So once they started to do that (which only takes a year or two) they'd do a great job at helping control erosion.
