A few plants I use in that situation:

1) African fern : very strong stems, doesn't get pushed around.
2) Large java ferns : almost as good as #1
3) Giant Hygro : unlike regular hygro, giant hydro has a very woody
stem, which makes it stand up against current well.

#1 and #2 would both fit.

As it happens, I've got some of each to spare.  Email me if you want it.
