Fountain Grass 'Hameln' is smaller than expected

I purchased Fountain Grass 'Hameln' a few years ago and so far it reached about 18" in height. It looks kind of silly in its current setting as I was planning for it to reach 2 1/2 - 3 ft as the tag advertised. Are there any other fountain grasses similar in texture to Hameln that grow a little larger?

Thx.

P.a. 'Weserbergland' is described as almost identical to 'Hameln,' only taller and having a more spreading habit.

Are you measuring your 'Hameln' to the foliage, or the flowers? Greenlee says the leaves are 12-20" long, and the plumes are another 10-18" beyond the foliage. Perhaps the tag referred to height in flower.

Thanks Don. I will see if I can get hold of 'Weserbergland'. I was measuring my 'Hameln' to the top of the foliage.
