B3, I grow both, Pennisetum Rubrum and Uncinia unciniata Rubrum and had to look a couple of times at your picture to decide which.
it is uncinia.....you can plant it out, keep it in the pot or divide it. It is tough and hardy
no, too much sun does not "destripe" a grass as far as I know but some can be bleached by it, for example, Bowles Golden Grass.
some grasses like M. Zebrinus start off plain green and develop their horizontal bars in mid summer. In too much shade some variegated grasses like C. overdam can lose their variegation....as can variegated shrubs and other perennials.
most carex prefer shade though. Maybe you can post a picture of yours.
put a plant where it likes to be.......
