There are many great plants for such an area. I would consider Red Bird of Paradise (Caesalpinia pulccherima), Yellow Bells (Tecoma stans), Firebush, Perennial Hibiscus (varieties like Lady Baltimmore, Flare, Moy Grande, and the Luna series). Other plants include Tropicanna or Phasion Canna, Copper Plant, and Angel's Trumpet (Brugmansia). A windmill palm will look nice near your pool. Enjoy!
