if the grass is a garden plant it might be one of the Calamagrostis x acutiflora cultivars. It's got the f;lower shape and the uprightness.

What is this plant please

 I'd have several of these and no hebes if I had to make a choice. It depends what you like. Don't forget that there are hundreds of flowers for insects, much pushed at GCs  to keep the pollinators happy because that's what's deemed important at the moment. The whole system is important, 2 legs, 4 legs, 6, 8, uncountable legs.

Euonymus europaeus

I think they're pollinated by flying things. You don't need a male and female.

I've had years with no berries but I don't know if it's weather or lack of flies at flowering time which may come down to the same thing

spiders eat insects, bees are insects. There's a lot of life out there. We may not like to see what in our view is a 'goodie' being eaten by a 'baddie' but without that balance of eat and be eaten we'd soon run out of life.
