You won't be able to tell what you have until it begins developing plumes (flowers). However, if this was purchased from a reputable nursery, the label should list its sex. Normally, females are the most commonly grown in home landscapes. They are much showier than their male counterparts with fuller plumes of silk-like hairs, of which the males do not have.
