Please suggest plants for the row in front. It recieves full sun in summer but none in winter. I am really confused on how to fill it.

As the exposure is changing from winters to summer it is better to plant annuals that can be replaced to match changing exposure. For winters try shade plants such as Cineraria, Mimulus and pansy(easily available in nurseries) digitalis,Browallia,Lobelia etc or you can try sun perennials, their growth will be reduced in winters but they will bounce back in summers. If you plant shade perennials they will suffer due scorching sun.

I have the same situation, I use fall summer flowering bulbs like, African blood Lilly, crinums, etc. Even Motia can do well.
