I received Bullfrog Kisses from Amygarden on the Lily Auction in September 2016. I got my first bloom on May 22, 2017, and it's been blooming every since. Most times singles, but sometimes two blooms at once. I love the way that the blooms often sits at the top of the scape. I love the color combination of the red and crimson...hard to capture the true beauty of this one. One of my favorite blooms this season. It is definitely a keeper in my garden.

Bullfrog Kisses is one of my favorites. I've grown it since shortly after introduction and it's never given me trouble. It reliably blooms, increases, and sets pods. Its first scapes are well underway having started a little earlier than normal. The colors are fantastic and still eye catching.

I've had Bullfrog Kisses for 4 years. This year Bullfrog has had a terrible case of rust that I've not been able to control. This daylily will probably be leaving my garden in the fall.

I acquired 3 fans of Bullfrog Kisses from a NGA member in Idaho (zone 7a) the end of October 2016. It began blooming extra early (probably due to the transplant from one zone/region to another) on January 17, 2017. I did not record the stats at that time (unfortunately). As of today, it still has 3 fans that do not appear to be increasing at this time. I did notice thrip damage on it this year.

January 17, 2017:

What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters, compared to what lies within us.
