I love heuchera but have stopped growing them in pots now as I've lost too many to the dreaded vine weevils. The ones growing in the borders have all been fine.
Heucheras worth a try. Ajugas, small varigated leaved ivies- both will trail down the sides of the containers. Small skimmias eg Rubella would also cope. GCs sell small plants of those at this time of year.
You could also underplant with small bulbs if you wanted. J.
I once had a camellia in a pot and I grew Corydalis Flexuosa round it which has very pretty blue flowers in spring and likes similar conditions as camellias. Only thing is that they die down in summer.
