Need help finding the right plant

I'm looking for a plant that can grow tall and creep over my java moss like a vine. I'm looking at the cardamine lyrata plant, but not sure if will creep over like I want. Does any thing exist like I describe. I'm still searching, maybe I'll find something different.

I'm getting some brazilian pennywort guys. I need low light plant, because my jungle vals completely took over the left side of the tank. Gonna use some plant anchors and drop them behide my hardscape/java moss. Then I'm thinking about anchoring the top or mid part of the plant and laying it down on the java moss to give it that vine look. I'll make sure you can't see the anchor, because my moss is super thick. I'll post pictures on a later date.

I got my pennywort today from my LFS. They ordered the plant for me and I don't mind helping them out, since I been going there as a kid. But any way the plant was kind of unhealthy, but I don't really mind since I can just nurse it back to health anyway. Used some java moss to cover up the plant anchors. I really love this plant so far it even has this minty smell to it. Go to find out you can actually eat this plant. I got some pictures, it's not much yet. I really hope this turns out well.

Thanks sheridan, I droped my lighting a little more closer to the water surface and slightly increase CO2. After just a day the plant is giving me new growth all ready. I also increase ferts slightly also, everything is taking off super fast. This plant is extremely easy so far. I'm liking the light green color on the dark green java moss, it makes it pop. Right now i hope it fills in more, but I'm sure it will.
