Description

Lilium tsingtauense Gilg 1904

Origin:
From China (Anhui, Shandong) to Korea; moist places in open forests

Laboratory comment:
Dutch breeders took care of wider tepals at Lilium tsingtauense, what is naturally quite unusual. Maybe then these flowers are more attractive? In any case, Lilium tsingtauense occurs in natural habitats only with narrow tepals. And so we only multiplied and cloned these.
