best midground plant?

have a 55 gallon high light co2 ei aquarium with stargrass as midground plant. its doing well but wild. looking for a non val, non crypt midground plant with some color. considering lobelia cardinalis or hygrophila corymbosa compacta to contrast background giant hairgrass and foreground staurogyne repens. any ideas?

Lobelia turns bright green when submerged, does not retain its emersed purple color. maybe try AR mini (red), ludwigia ovalis/goias (orange), or other colored ludwigias.
