I have had Bradley Bernard several years, I really like this UF. I received it as a small single fan in 2012, took 2 or 3 years to really start multiplying, but I have a nice clump now. It blooms well, nice big blooms. I think it is a child of Trahlyta, which you can tell, I think I rather like Bradley Bernard better.

I received Bradley Bernard as a gift two years ago. It was small, so I put it in a holding bed the first season. I moved it to a permanent position last summer. It has not bloomed yet, but it did increase and bulk up well. To be fair, the holding bed position was quite shady. It is in a sunny spot now, so it should bloom this summer.

Update, May 2, 2018
Bradley Bernard is now greening up, and I counted at least seven fans.

I've had Bradley Bernard since 2014. The photo below was taken in 2015. I need to get some updated photos taken this year. Yes, you definitely can see Trahlyta in it. I got BB not only because I think it's a very nice looking DL but Bradley is my brothers name, so it represents him in my garden.

BB has been a slow increaser in my garden. (But I like that just fine.) I don't think it gets as tall as its registered height for me.

We have grown Bradley Bernard for about three summers. We sell much of it each summer, and it quickly grows back to a sizeable clump by the following spring. We send multiple fans, not just DF's. So, for us in NW GA (zone 7), it is a fast increaser. We actually shipped five DF+ this week and still have several fans left to increase. It will be a nice clump this time next year.

Bradley Bernard has done well here. It has been here for about six years. Slow increaser in a somewhat part shade spot. Surrounded by a tall peony on one side and a deciduous shrub on the other.
