Plant recomendations

Ive always done "nature style" planted tanks, and this time I thought Id try an iwagumi layout. The truth of the matter is....My wife says it looks kind of "boring".

Soooo...Instead of re-doing it, I thought I would add some different plants to give it more dimension/interest/etc...

It currently only has dwarf hairgrass and Im looking for suggestions on what else I could plant in there that would stay with the scale of things and hopefully not totally change the hill/mountain look.

Any/all suggestions are greatly appreciated!

(It is high-light, pressurized co2, Daily Pfertz, Aquasoil, 60r.o./40 tap)
