I would plant it with one variety in one colour
The purple surfinias are the best scented of the lot. If you pinch back at planting to make bushy, feed well and let them grow you will have that planter smothered in flower and scent.
Begonia firecracker is good too. Unlike those big blousey begonias these will flower all summer long on cascading plants. Get tubers now. At summer's end keep the tubers for next year.
Ivy pelargoniums ...all of one colour......will flower impressively with less water needs. Osteospermums too will do same thing
