Peace Lily Overview
Spathiphyllum floribundum is an evergreen perennial species in the arum family, Araceae. Also commonly known by the names Peace Lily or Snowflower. This attractive plant has a tufted habit and produces lance-shaped, shiny leaves with long pointed tips, up to 15cm long. It also has green-white flowering spathes, which measure around 8 cm in length. Native to northwestern South America, this is an attractive foliage plant that tolerates neglect well. It is a popular houseplant due to its preference to a shady location, it adapts well to growing indoors but will flower better with increased light.
