|I have a large front porch with very tall ceilings and very tall doors. I have pots flanking the front doors. My question is what to plant in the pots because 1 pot gets full morning sun while the other is fully shaded. I would love to have some sort of evergreen that looks good year round then add seasonal fillers|

It sounds like you have a wonderful front porch that plants and flowers will make even more beautiful! If you can give us a general idea of what part of the country you live, it will better help to narrow down plants that will thrive in your area.
One shrub that does well in containers and can be pruned to size and shape is: Japanese Boxwood (Buxus microphylla 'Green Mountain') It can be trimmed to form a pyramidal shape or a round ball shape.
Another dwarf shrub that would work for containers is Arborvitae (Thuja occidentalis 'Amber Glow')
But, again it depends on what part of the country you are located as to what plants grow in that area.
