There are quite a few plants that you could use as a background in a tall tank. Hygrophila corymbosa "angustifolia" is a great one, well actually most Hygophilas should work, tall Cryptocorynes (spiralis, balansae, retrospiralis), Vallisneria nana has a nice thin leaf, Cyperus helferi (if it likes your tank). With the stem plants the base may look a bit ratty when it gets tall but if you have other plants in front of them it doesn't matter.

Have you considered using some thinner driftwood (branchy rather than trunklike). You can use it to put some ferns and anubias up higher in the background. I've collected some boring, nearly straight driftwood pieces and attached ferns to one end and then stuck them in the substrate upright to get the fern up high. With other plants around the base of the stick you can't see the boring wood.
