VERY new, excited, but in need of advice on amarillo sun plants


I have a back porch that definitley needs some plant tlc. I have 4 hanging lanterns that have small baskets hanging from them about 12 inches wide and 9 deap. The sun will be coming in from the south, very hot sun! Our summers reach 115 sometimes. I have a table that Im going to build a hanging "chandelier" that I would like to put a big flowy flowering plant in, in the evening there will be christmas lights that are hanging at the bottom. It will be in the heat, but not the sun.

My questions are this:

What plants can take the direct heat and sun in the small hanging baskets? Id like anything that can "bush" out. So the people will have a little blocked sun when sitting at the table during the day. Ones that flower would be great, but Id take any direction.

Next, what bushy plant can I put in the hanging chandelier that doesnt need any direct sun? Id like it to get big enough to hang over and blend with the lights at night.

Last but not least, I have a peace lillie that is on its last leg. I cant get the lighting right! please help!!

It wont let me download pictures!!
