Starting a 2.5g walstad ... low growing plant suggestions?

Hi all!

Planning on doing a 2.5g walstad shrimp tank and I wanted suggestions on some plants that will stay small to minimize the need to trim them.

I definitely wanted some dwarf hairgrass and crypt parva. In addition, my LFS stocks a "dwarf pennywort" that stays small. I was also considering dwarf sag.

Are there any other commonly available low growing plants that would work for a 2.5g tank?
