Lilium tsingtauense (also known as "Twilight Lily") is a species of lily native to East China and Korea. It is a medium sized herb that grows as a single stem from a scaly bulb. It has smooth, inversely lanceolate leaves, about 13 centimetres (5.1 in) long and mostly in 2 whorls. The plant bears loose umbels of 6 (but may be up to 15) upright, unscented, shallow trumpet-shaped flowers, that blossom under partial sunlight. These appear in midsummer and are orange or reddish-orange with maroon spots. The plant is about 70–100 centimetres (28–39 in) tall.[1]

It is named for the city of Tsingtao (Qingdao) in The People's Republic of China.[2]
