    Dwarf Grasses such as Yaku Jima, Moudry or Adagio, Purple Diamond Lorpetalum, Drift Roses and maybe if you have a larger pot you could use a Tree Formed Limelight Hydrangea as your focal point of the pot, and plant some low growing perennials around it such as Dianthus, or sedums or Ice plant.

    How about Drift Roses? They require full sun and bloom spring to frost. They are from the Knockout family so they are easy to care for.
