Japanese Grass?

I have two of these in my plow bed (there is an old plow in there for the clematis to romp around). Is it an annual, or a perennial? Can it be brought into the house?

It looks similar to these only a much deeper red.

Am I correct in naming it a Japanese grass?

Thanks in advance

I just Googled 'red Japanese grass' and found lots of pretty photos. One was called Imperata cylindrica 'Red Baron' or Japanese Blood Grass.

be careful with japanese blood grass, it can become invasive very quickly
I think I found the truth, problem is it makes no sense....

This looks like Imperata indeed - and it is a lovely grass - Like many grasses, they spread by underground runners or rhizomes. This one is soft (as opposed to, say, Bamboo), so you can easily mow the edges as you see fit. It should be perennial.
