THE GRASSES THAT ARE PICTURED HERE HOW HIGH DO THEY GROW?
The tall grasses on the left and right are miscanthus varieties --- an exotic invasive. They are threatening our natural areas in MD. I'd advise against planting these.

While cottage gardens are remarkably adaptable, somehow a fluffy yard of roses doesn't always work with a more modern architectural design. Grasses, especially those with a mix of colors in their flower heads, make a great, slightly more contemporary substitute.
Using plantings as building blocks doesn’t mean you are restricted to evergreen ground covers or clump-forming grasses. Here we see a planting that is both exuberant and colorful as part of a very contemporary scheme for a modern house.

Situating a clump of ornamental grass along a pathway
Situating a clump of ornamental grass along a pathway is a wonderful way to experience the texture of the stalks and the plume. Allowing the grasses to lean over into a walkway gives the walker an even more visceral experience. Just be careful which grasses you choose. Some can have very sharp blades

The grass is Red Fescue or Festuca Rubra. It should be able to grow in Florida, assuming that where you live does not get below 30 degrees. It is a non-mow grass that requires less water than conventional
I have this kind of grass. We have pop-up sprinklers with 6" heads, and we use a timer: 15 minutes on, 10 minutes off to let it soak in, then 15 minutes on again. That much sprinkling, once a week, is enough to keep the shady parts of our lawn lush and happy. The sunny parts are a little parched
