Looking for an outdoor plant, in Chicago, il

I am looking for a leafy green outdoor plant that looks like a mushroom when planted, it has long leaves, solid in color that hang beautifully into a round shape. I have seen them everywhere in Chicago but can't seem to find them anywhere. I don't know the name only what it looks like. Any help or even a picture would help. Thank you! P.s, usually these plants are found along a fence.

From your brief description it won't be possible to identify the plant. However, if you'd like to email several photographs (full plant and close up) to me at, I'll see if I can tell from the photos.
