Are these just cultivated, imported poaceae or they can be found naturalized in the wild?

The plant was some 2-3m high

Think it's called "pampas grass" and very definitely non native.

I have a clump of this, in summer it appreciates a little bit of water or else it goes a bit ugly, like mine did.

native not to Malta but to Brasil!
