Question short plants?

I was at Petsmart today, and I was checking to see if they had any plants that don't grow too tall. Unfortunately, none of the plant tags said how big they grow. There were two that I was looking at, so I thought I'd check and see if anyone here knows how big they grow.

The first plant was Crypt Parva and the second plant was Hygnophila 'Kompakt', at least, I think that's how it was spelled.

Anyone know anything about these plants?

Hygros (including the kompackt) grow tall and wide.
The crypt (Im pretty sure) will grow low and lazily to the sides. I dont think theyre too tall.

Abubias doesnt grow too tall, usually-- only over many years in a non-c02 tank.

I second Pewpewpew's suggestion of Anubias! They are very slow growing, so even if they did need trimming, it would be infrequent. They also do not need any special lighting. Just DO NOT BURY THEM IN THE SUBSTRATE! If you do that they will rot. They like to grow on top of driftwood and rocks.

You can bury them, just not that stick looking thing (the rhizome)..if theres loads of roots, it fine-- bury those no problem, but not the rhizome.

Its usually just said not to bury it, but its possible. Gets a little confusing sometimes :P
