What can I add to make this Pool Planter "Pop"?

Port Charlotte, FL(Zone 10a)

I keep adding to it and it just looks kind of "blah". So far I have liriope, some kind of small philodendrum, Croton and just added a bunch of Artillery fern (Love that Plant!). It's under the pool screen so it's a little cooler than out in the yard, but it's still going to get pretty hot here! I need to plant something that keeps it's shape and doesn't drop a lot of leaves/petals into the pool. Something that doesn't grow to high, so not to obstruct the view. Probably a plant that's light in color or a complimentary colorful contrast. (talk about picky! hehe). Annuals would be fine as I don't mind replacing them...but perennials would be better!

Any suggestions?
