Fritillaria yuminensis is a medicinal species endemic to northwest Xinjiang, China. The complete chloroplast genome sequence of F. yuminensis was sequenced by Illumina Hiseq platform. The complete cp genome was 151,813 bp in length, containing a pair of inverted repeats (IRa and IRb) of 26,377 bp, a large single copy (LSC) of 81,533 bp and a small single copy (SSC) of 17,526 bp, respectively. The overall GC contents was 36.9%. A total of 114 genes were annotated, including 80 protein-coding genes, 30 tRNA genes and 4 rRNA genes. A maximum-likelihood phylogenetic analysis indicated that F. yuminensis was closely related to F. tortifolia and F. verticillata.
