'Tobacco Road', from Dr. Kleinsorge, 1942, is remembered as an iris which was welcomed into our garden with more than the usual fanfare. Judged by present day standards, it is unlikely this iris would be the cause of much excitement, but not too many years ago, it represented definite progress in its color class. [Mrs. J. R. Hamblen, "Drama of Progress", A.I.S. Bulletin 161(April 1961): 10.]
