Is this purple fountain grass? I bought it as an unnamed perennial. If it is indeed purple fountain grass, is it perennial in z5?

Follow up to my own post-I thought it was a sedge due to the stems felt triangular until I saw the flower stalk, thats what made me wonder if its fountain grass....

Pennesetum setaceum 'Rubrum' -- annual even in Zone 8 where I live unless grown in a greenhouse. Wonderful container plant for long summer/fall season.
