Is it sunny or shady, moist or dry? There are some lovely small hebes with variagated foliage which are evergreen and have pretty flowers. If it's dry and sunny there are some small potentillas which flower for a long time, helianthemums would like this too. Pittosporum 'Tom Thumb'. Euonymus 'Emerald & Gold' and Hyssopus officinals (Hyssop) would all look good. Even smaller you could have different colour heathers dependant on whether your soil is acid or not. So it really depends on your conditions.

If it's a sunny bed, you could add patio roses! They'd be lovely...some are fragrant, too.
