Why not try some of the following:
DWARF PAPYRUS (Cyperus isocladus)
A small, aquatic sedge that resembles its giant cousin, the Egyptian papyrus. Fine-textured, threadlike, terminal bracts and glossy, green umbels that grow to 2-3″ in diameter. The flowers are borne in noticeable brown spikes. A wonderful accent in small pools, ponds, pots, or tubs, and a stunning choice for fresh or dried arrangements. Pest and disease-free
GREEN GODDESS (Zantedeschia aethiopica)
The Green Goddess is an herbaceous perennial with large arrow-shaped dark green leaves and green spathes, white in the throat with yellow spadices. The Goddess is an ideal choice to add height to a water garden.
MINITURE CORKSCREW RUSH (Juncus decipiens)
Use this plant to create a natural looking bog habitat. The interestingly shaped stems are often clipped and used to add architectural flair to flower arrangements and center pieces. This dense Rush can also help control pond erosion
