Welcome, Whirlybrd02!

How about:

Blanket Flower (Gaillardia aristata)
Lance-leaf Tickseed (Coreopsis lanceolata)
Gaura, tall kinds (Gaura lindheimeri)
Missouri Coneflower (Rudbeckia fulgida)

Assuming that you meant herbaceous perennials

Most important is how big the planter boxes are - if they're shallow troughs, say, no deeper than a foot, you're restricted to plants which only get a maximum of 2/2.5 feet.

Some veronicas flower for ages, or if a small shrub would do then potentillas flower longer than just about any other.

Have you thought of ruddbekia - various colours yellow to deep red, large daisy like blooms and flower forever? Dead-heading not necessary, just as you are passing. Herbaceous perennial, clumps can be split in late autumn after cutting down. Loved by bees. Likes full sun but does need a good water once a week and feed once a month. Can grow up to 2m, including flower head. Surprisingly shallow rooted for such a prolic flowering plant.
