Any stem plant and some rhizome plants (like anubias) will meet this

Same as above, but don't do anacharis.

You will have to prune most plants eventually to keep them submersed.

I'd recommend Anubias.  Train it to grow its thick rhizome vertically, and
don't allow growth along the side of the rhizome or it will start to look
like a bush.
