Commanding garden presence, especially in a clump. I grew it in my zone 5 garden, where it had richer color due to the cooler climate and also in my zone 7 garden where it was more orange. Increases nicely but I could not set a pod on it, so it eventually left my garden. Highly recommend this one especially for northern climates as it is from a Michigan hybridizer., Ric Adams, who works with hardy lines. It was unforgettable as a clump at the national in the Detroit area in 2002.....that is how it got its name. The hybridizer's garden was a tour garden.

'Panic In Detroit' has been in my garden for over three years now and has struggled here. This was the best year so far and it has finally managed to increase a little. It had very few buds, and a very short blooming period again this year. Maybe next year it will finally be able to put on a show. It has managed to bloom every year for the past three years, but that is the best I can say for it so far here in my warm weather south Alabama garden.

Last year I said I hoped this year 'Panic In Detroit' would put on a show. Well, it certainly did, great year this year, close to 40 inch scapes , lots of blooms, but not a high bud count yet and a nice series of rebloom. I never did get a pod to set, and I was told it will not set pods. But, the pollen is good and I did some crosses using it. The scapes need to be a bit stronger still, they do lean with the heavy blooms, and this year there were often several blooms opened at one time.
