Can you help?

I've got a couple grasses that I'm sharing but would like to tell them what they are getting.
This first one has tubular stems (?)
And the second one I was told was pony grass. There is a fine white line running down the stem.

The first one (in bloom) looks like either Festuca Glauca (Blue Fescue) or Helictotrichon sempervirens (Blue Oat Grass).

The second one looks like one of the fine-bladed Miscanthus, like Miscanthus sinensis 'Gracillimus' or 'Adagio' or 'Graziella.'

RE: Can you help?

I agree with you on the second one.
I finally found a pic of the first one....Juncus inflexus 'Lovesick Blues'
Thanks so much for your help!
