An evergreen azalea or rhododendron will happily grow in a large pot whatever the situation.
In sun choisya ternatta.....the Mexican orange blossom...is rich green, richly scented evergreen that can be pruned to nice topiary shape. Taxus Standishii is lovely erect yellow conifer and Taxus Coppershine is orange in spring turning to yellow in summer. Easy conifers resistant to scorch or browning
Phormiums too....red or,yellow foliage can look very impressive
In partial shade pieris is good as is camelia if no early morning sun. Hydrangeas too are excellent if you can water well
