Plants for a 32cm pot

Hi can someone please give me some advice on which plants to plant up a 32cm ceramic pot

I would prefer summer flowering perennials 

Or just whatever you think would make a nice display

    I have lots of pots and plant a lot of different plants in them.
    i have hydrangea 
    tree lilies 
    mirabilis 
    star of bethelem
    dahlia
    dianthus
    patio roses and half standard roses
    geranium

    infact most things will grow quite happily in a decent sized pot if fed and watered.
    i put the Mirabilis and star of bethelrm in pots as they can be a bit invasive and this way they stay where I want them and don’t try to take over the flower beds

    To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palm of your hand and eternity in an hour.

    Geraniums are great in pots and very forgiving if you forget to water them for a couple of days.

    I had a look online at my local garden centre and I noticed geranium scented which would look nice what do you think?

    Yes I would go for a couple of different colours to give a display like this

    Geraniums or pelargoniums? Good to be clear.
