..sure.. no problem... although my experience of some Miscanthus is that the flower heads on some can flop about especially when wet.. as does flowerheads of Calamagrostis brachytricha - Korean feather grass.. which I love but it's a bit unstable... Helictotrichon flowers also flopped about for me so I got rid..didn't like that..
the most upright Miscanthus I've tried is one called 'Ghana'...the flower heads are dead straight up, a bit like the Karl Forster grass...about 4 foot with red foliage in autumn... although my favourite is the one I grow called 'Kleine Fontaine'... which is fairly stable if divided each 3 years or so... and it does epitomise a fountain when in full flush.,..
..still, for pool side planting I prefer something evergreen and non-flowering... which is why I prefer dwarf Fargesia...which is essentially unfussy and trouble free.. as flowerheads on grasses can get a bit messy I find... however the cascaders are quite nice I agree... Hakonechloa aurea is gorgeous isn't it..?
..can't identify those grasses for the member...maybe someone else can.. but unable to enlarge the photos which makes it a bit difficult unless you're a specialist..and I'm certainly not one of those...lol
