Sharing some images of a Pennisetum sp. as a host plant for the stalked eggs of the Lacewing Fly. The slender stalks of these tiny eggs (c. 1.5 mm w/o the stalk) are suspended upon a bristle of the inflorescence.
Clicked on the fringes of an agricultural landscape in Pimpri-Chinchwad, Maharashtra [10-March-2013]. Would appreciate a species-level ID of this grass, it is around 8 feet tall.

Pennisetum polystachyon. This is found in inflorescence colours varying from yellow to red, probably due to hybridisation with Pennisetum pedicellatum.

ornamental grass  
Dear friends,
These pictures are taken just for sake of capturing the beauty of grass. Not requesting ID, because photos do not cover required aspects.  

Beautiful scene, appreciate it. still i will take a stab at naming it? one on the left: the fluffy one Muhlenbergia sp? though can also be part of Pennistemum group.
I know you did not want id.  :)
Thanks … for the possible genera :)
I too thought of fountain grass ... but on internet came across so many of Pennisetum spp. and their cultivars, I thought is better to label it simply as "ornamental grass" !!
In such cases, perhaps recognizing works better than identifying.

i had run into a lot of ornamental grasses in southern california over the decades but this year it was everywhere because of increasing use of xeriscaping plants for mass and color in roadsides and in avenue center dividers and now the grasses
i had run into a lot of ornamental grasses in southern california over the decades
but this year it was everywhere because of increasing use of xeriscaping plants for mass and color in roadsides and in avenue center dividers
and now the grasses are sprouting where they were never planted. they look very nice in slight breeze
Pennisetum polystachyon
Pennisetum polystachyon and Cymbopogon winterianus in the second picture

so my original spelling was incorrect.  correct genus spelling is Pennisetum.
species ided by ... is Pennisetum polystachyon
