Jannie,
You need to choose things that can take that amount of sunlight. Yellow bells is a good plant for hot areas but may not survive the winters there. Likewise tropicals can take the heat but would need to be brought in for winters. These next two web sites provide suggestions for annual and perennial plants respectively:

Keep in mind too that it is not just the sun that is the problem. You need to improve the soil by mixing in some compost into the soil prior to planting. Also water regularly enough to keep the soil moist but not soggy wet. Adequate moisture is critical to surviving the hot summer sun.
