I'd fill the planter with topsoil or with a 50/50 mix of garden soil and potting soil to help the planter retain water during the summer months. Some good choices are those that are drought tolerant. Here are a few suggestions:
Agastache foeniculum - Anise hyssop; Artemisia; Centauria montana - Perennial bachelor?s button; Coreopsis spp.- Coreopsis; Dianthus spp. - Pinks; Echinacea purpurea - Purple cone flower; Echinops ritro - Globe thistle; Erygium spp. - Sea holly; Euphorbia sp. - Spurge; Gaillardia spp. - Blanket flower; Siberian iris; lia -Lavender; Liatris spp. - Gay feather; Nepeta spp. - Catmint; Phlox; Black-eyed Susan; Salvia; Sedum and Lamb's Ears.
