Find a good info site on Echinodorus, then read the plant species descriptions. There are some species that will readily send leaves above the surface. I've seen photos of aquarists' tanks that are open-topped with the water lowered a bit, and swords shooting above the water. Just have to track down the species. I know E. macrophyllus will do this, I have this species but removing the odd leaf keeps it in the tank, and the cover is quite close to the surface anyway.
