The beauty of ornamental grasses is the 4 season interest they provide in the garden. There are many ornamental grasses suitable for your gardening zone. I think you'll find these attractive:
Feather Reed Grass (Calamagrostis acutiflora 'Karl Foerster')
Indian Grass (Sorghastrum nutans)
Little Bluestem (Schizachyrium scoparium)
Northern Sea Oats (Chasmanthium latifolium)
Prairie Dropseed (Sporobolus heterolepis)
Purple Fountain Grass (Pennisetum setaceum)
Variegated Miscanthus (Miscanthus sinensis 'Morning Light')
Dallas Blues Switch Grass (Panicum virgatum 'Dallas Blues' PPAF)

You may find many other varieties available in your local garden center.

Best wishes with your garden!
