I believe you do have the right plant despite appearances.  For some reason
the red swords seem to revert to a green "wild-type" look when they go
emersed.  This is almost always true unless they are verigated white of
verigated red (they keep the SPOTS emersed).  

Let your sword grow submersed for a couple of weeks and you'll see the new
growth should look as soft and RED as you first expected.
