There are lots of hardy plants that are relatively easy care. Here are a few:
Rock Rose (Pavonia lasiopetala): pink, mini-hibiscus flowers; shrubby; everblooming; shear occasionally; drought tolerant; sun; 3 feet.
Indigo Spires Salvia (Salvia hybrid): purple flowers; shear occasionally; very vigorous; excellent; sun; 3 feet.
Firebush (Hamelia patens): red-orange, tubular flowers, prized by hummingbirds; red fall foliage; everblooming; drought tolerant; shear occasionally; sun to part shade; hardy; 2 - 3 feet.
Dwarf Indian Blanket (Gaillardia grandiflora): red-yellow, bi-color flowers; everblooming, remove spent blooms to extend bloom time; heat and drought tolerant; full sun; 1 foot.
Trailing Lantana (Lantana montevidensis): lilac flowers; blooms in spring, summer, fall; very drought tolerant; great as a groundcover, in containers or hanging baskets; sun or partial shade; 1 to 2 feet.
