Some good choices for bedding plants are marigolds and carnations. They can stand the heat and occassional neglect of watering. They are great for bedding and window boxes because the plants don't get huge like canna lilies. Geraniums are also good but need a deeper root base. Snapdragons can be a good choice too.
