I apologize for this delayed reply to your gardening question and hope it is still helpful to you.

I think types of lantana are a great choice for those requirements. You may also want to try dwarf zinnias but they will require more regular watering.

The houseplant that does well on the least light is the Closet Plant (Spathiphyllum). Chinese Evergreen (Aglaonema) would be next on the low light list. Snake Plant or Mother-in-law's (Sansevieria) is also tolerant of low light and is a very low care plant.

Thanks for the question. Best wishes for a wonderful gardening season. Please stop in again soon!
