I would consider fanflower, purslane and narrowleaf zinnia for summer. It would also be good to try a Mystic Spires salvia, Batface cuphea, or dwarf crape myrtle if the area is very sunny. For a larger plant a dwarf juniper shrub or if the area is shady a large houseplant would be good.

Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
