Vertically Challenged Background Plants?

So it's been a while since i was on here and i'm still working on my 5gallon. My HC carpet is struggling but slowly filling in and i'm having a difficult time selecting background plants. I've got Rotala Macandra in the left corner and it's doing fine, in the left i have Pogostemon Erectus that is growing too tall and too fast for my little tank. Any suggestions?

E. parvula is "tall" compared to HC. If 3" is too short for you, try E. acicularis, which is slightly taller.

I LOL'ed at vertically challenged.

c. wendtii could work well. lots of colors to chose from, and the leaves can get large if you let them (i usually trim off ones that go higher than i want, but i had some that were 8" with the stem).
