Ok, none of those are actually grasses MrsG. None of these produce those wafting flwers you wanted
I disagree about comans though......doesn't seed for me and is well Behaved. I think it's a beautiful thing......mop head and moves in fhe breeze. Carex buchanii seeds though so maybe confusion there but it is darker....more red....and tightly erect. Nice though as an accent.
Testacea is a beauty.
Carex like moisture ge really. Grasses usually like it drier.
A lot of carex are similar so make su??ou what you get is different enough......but carex can be boring at least some of them. ,grasses are softer, more tactile (try touching a carex seed head amd it will irritate your hand. Not a touchable plant for path edge or for kids)
MrsG, please don't buy because they're cheap. Your list above has similar plants. Avoid Juncus.......awful
