How much do you guys charge to install plants?

ie) Primula's are like 87 cents, lol.. how much would you charge a customer to install 16 plants?

What type of plants are colorful and all year around currently?

Depends on the plant.

I currently charge 48 a flat of petunias, 64 a flat of zinnia an marrigold, and pansies which are our winter color, (god help us but that is about it) is 50 a flat.
This is about 200% above what it costs me, and sometimes if I get motivated several month before when I need the flowers and grow them myself it is over 1000%.
I can grow a flat of marigolds for less than a buck.

You have to take in to consideration that the beds will have to be cleaned up and cultivated before you plant in them. I haven't fond one were i could just jam flower in and go. So you need to charge for that too
