Foreground plant for low light aquariums

I've been doing so research into low light foreground plants and I haven't had much luck. The best I could come up with was dwarf sagittaria. From what ive read about dwarf sagittaria it grows pretty tall. I anyone knows of a good foreground for low light aquariums

I'm talking pretty low. This is my first planted tank and I don't want to get to over my head right away.
