Help, What Grasses Do I have?

My mother gave me 4 different grasses in pots that she dug out of her property. She does not know what they are. I wanted t know if anyone could identify them for me. I don't know where to plant them as I don't know what they do (ie: size, show, zone)

It would be better identified if the seed heads were will get a better idea next year when they go to seed.....

This one looks like a Reed grass (maybe Karl Forester)

As far as planting ornamental grasses, most like to grow in full sun in rich, moist soil. They are drought tolerant once established, but will grow better if kept moist. Basically, just grow them as you would an ordinary lawn.
Once the grasses have reached their full heights and begin to flower, they will be easier to identify.
