Default Planting for my mom

Hi, I'd like to plant some flowers in my mothers garden. I'd like to
plant 8 square meters of bright flowering plants, ina 3x3
arrangement, witha 1x1 hole in the middle, or ina line, I've yet to
decide. Anyway, I'd like to plant 8 different colours of flowers,
preferably of the same type, but looking similar will be fine too. I
don't know what flowers to plant however, perhaps you could advise me
some points to consider:


- I want them to be flowering for as long as possible, and not look
trashy when they aren't

- They wil be in full sun

- The yard has clayey soil

- The yard has some very laerge trees with an extremely prominant root
structure all over the garden

- I can plant these flowers in a raised bed

- I can dig up to 1 meter throught the roots and clay, fill it in with
different soil, then plant

-I can only spend 2-300 dollars

- I live in sydney, in the north shore, in st ives (for climate)

Thanks in advance

It's hard to get 8 different colours, unless you count light purple and
dark purple etc as different. Petunias have the greatest colour range I
think. Or snapdragons. They are both very long flowering. You could also
maybe do a daisy-type collection, e.g. Federation daisies, zinnias,
rudbeckias, gaillardias, echinacea, felicia, osteospermum, etc

They will need followup care, such as watering, feeding and deadheading
(to prolong flowering).
