I seem to remember that 'Kissed Off' performed pretty well last year. This year is has gotten off to a slow start. The scapes are few, the buds are minimal, and the scape height is very short when compared to last year. There were only 7 dead bloomed out scapes when I checked this morning, with a low bud count of six. The blooms were per the stats 5 inches and that was with a lot of recurve on the blooms. So a little disappointing, but the good news is that it is reblooming already as shown by the photo I took this morning. The scapes are much taller, the bud count is much better also, so maybe 'Kissed Off' should not be kissed off too early because it is making a comeback.
I got this plant back in June 2014, so it is three years old. It has multiplied and bloomed each season, but is still a small clump. The first scape on it appeared on April 30th this year, but I managed to miss when it first started blooming, I assume mid May.

'Kissed Off' : Bloom this morning, it had a beautiful green throat.
