A lily flower field measuring 600 mu (40 hectares) in Laiwu district, Jinan, Shandong province, is in full bloom.
The picturesque view the field offers was made possible by the efforts of the Shandong Yingtai Cultural Tourism Company, which renovated and restored the abandoned mining fields in Tongshan village and Damanzi village in Laiwu district in 2018.
The company spent around a year planting more than 10 varieties of medicinal lilies in this area.
