(Species / Wild Lily)
L. yapingense is an exceptionally rare, dwarf that is native to alpine areas of China. This lilium species is nomocharis-like in similarity. It is similar in appearance to L. nanum but differs from L. nanum in that L. yapingense has no spots on the tepal bases but instead has symmetric stripes.
