have: tall switch grass/want: japanese silver grass

I just bought a new "Cloud Nine" Switch Grass (ornamental grass). But it doesn't seem to look right in the spot I picked out for it. I'd return it to my nursery, but it's already in the ground. I still have the receipt and plant label for it. It's described as "A strong growing blue switch grass, with clouds of airy flower clusters August to November. Metallic blue foliage turns to yellow, orange, and red in fall. Bloom time: White flowers in late summer. Light Preference: Full sun. Hardiness: Zone 4. Mature Size: height (6-8') spread (4'). Divide in spring. I can send you photos of it as well - just contact me.

I'm looking for a Japanese Silver Grass that'll grow somewhere in the same height range: 6ft.
