ID this red grass

I recently returned from touring the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC. This red / pink grass was planted everywhere in huge masses. It is just beautiful, I must have it! Can anyone ID it?

I love pink muhly too and it just happens to be a native grass!

I have some of the wild stuff in my yard from time to time. Not as tall or as red as the garden variety, and not as long a season at its best.
