"SINKIANG is a plicata done in two shades of blue. The standards are much like RIBBON ROUND
with the falls similar to BLUE PETTICOATS
. This is definitely a new color for irises." [Ron Mullin, “Memories of the Convention,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 206 (July 1972): 22.]
"A bicolor plicata like SINKIANG is also a new color pattern. The standards are white edged in light blue while the falls are white with a violet edging. The form on this one is good and the contrast in color makes it quite a beauty." [Ron Mullin, “An Iris Holiday,” The Bulletin of the American Iris Society, No. 208 (January 1973): 13.]
