Dwarf sag will grow taller than something named dwarf should.
C. Parva is the slowest grower of this group and will stay low, i've had 3 in my tank for as long as i can remember and they haven't really grown much at all.
i have no experice with tenellum, but i had another Helanthium that grew out of control on me.
and i have no experience marsilea but i'v heard good things.

the crypt wendtti will grow above the suface and taller than i think you want a carpet to, but trimming will keep it nice a bushy.
