Verdun's comment is valid, nothing to do with size of garden, choose plants that suit the situation you have if you want them to thrive

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.

'Karl Foerster' or similar

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.

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
