I'm not exactly sure which ornamental grass you have in mind. Purple Fountain Grass is a popular one but it is not winter hardy in your growing region. Instead, you might try growing Miscanthus sinensis purpurascens (Maiden Grass). It has a purple coloration and is hardy in your growing region. Enjoy your garden!
