I planted an 'Oneil' blueberry in a 15 gallon pot 3 years ago. It's bears very well alongside a 'Sunshine Blue' also in a large pot. Very healthy growing in morning sun. DMN website says it requires 600 chilling hours, and it always bears very well in Livermore, CA in a 15 gallon pot, so maybe it gets some more cold by being in a pot. Starts bearing in early May.
