Container plants

My containers look like they've been run over by a truck this time of year (the fresh dump of snow hides it right now) but I've seen some ideas on having green containers year-round by using plants that look good all year, and supplementing them with annuals with the new seasons. Some plants that I like (besides the boxwoods above):

Cupressus macrocarpa 'Wilma' (small trees now, but can grow to 20 ft. tall -- so they'd have to be transferred out of the container eventually).

Emerald Isle Spikemoss (I wonder if they would keep their ball shapes once planted?)
