You can make the edge color of the rectangle patch the same color as
the facecolor

ax.axesPatch.set_facecolor('g')
ax.axesPatch.set_edgecolor('g')
ax.axesPatch.set_linewidth(0)

For more control, you can do something like

from matplotlib.numerix import arange, sin, pi
from pylab import figure, show

fig = figure()
ax = fig.add_subplot(111, xlim=(-1,1), ylim=(-1,1),
             xticks=[], yticks=[],
             frameon=False, autoscale_on=False)
ax.axvline(0, color='k', lw=2)
ax.axhline(0, color='k', lw=2)
ax.text(0.0, 0.0, '(0,0)')
ax.text(0.0, 1.0, '(0,1)')
ax.text(1.0, 0.0, '(1,0)')
t = arange(-1,1,0.01)
ax.plot(t,sin(2*pi*t), lw=1, color='b')

show()
