Not sure what to tell you. You won't get exact same effect but could try upright grasses.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jay Sifford Garden Design added this to Set Your Shade Garden Aglow With Light
Embrace the art of backlighting. Some of the more mundane plants in your garden will suddenly take on new vibrancy when placed in front of available light. Some of the most effective plants for this technique are those that are translucent by nature, those that capture and diffuse light. My favorite translucent plant is the sometimes-invasive horsetail rush (Equisetum hyemale, zones 3 to 11). Its 3- to 4-foot upright growth habit is a perfect foil for a curved or rounded sculpture, or a clumping shrub. Just be sure to contain it, lest it spread indefinitely.

Horsetail Rush - Looks like bamboo but it does have to be "contained"... maybe in some containers or planter troughs. It likes the shade and it looks Zen. Something I could grow.
