Grass Combination -
Little Bluestem in front, Panicum behind, Miscanthus to the side and a touch of blue Verbena bonairensis 

(The name 'Miscanthus' was given to this genus of perennial grasses native to Japan and the Philippines by the 19th century Swedish botanist Nils Johan Andersson. 

It comes from the Greek words 'miskos' which means "stem" or "stalk" and 'anthos', meaning "flowers" in reference to the seed heads. Clearly seen on the left here. )
