Help me pick a plant!

Help me pick a plant!

The front of my house needs a nice perennial, but there are some factors that makes the choice harder. 1) It needs to be able to thrive in a 7a/b island climate. 2) It needs to be a sunlover, as the front of the house gets blasted from morning to afternoon. 3) It needs to be snail resistant and/or repellent. 4) It needs to be able to handle a bit of kittypee, at least in the beginning, as the bare dirt there is right now the favourite place for the local stray cats. Optimally I'd also like something that looks nice, has flowers and/or smells nice, but at this point I'll take anything that's just able to survive and make the front of the house look pretty. Everything else is just grass fried to dead straw by the sun. Heeeeeeelp!
