Spathiphyllum - Peace Lily


 

The "Peace Lily" or "Spathiphyllum" is one of the most popular plants grown and is seen regularly adding a touch of beauty to homes around Ireland.

Its flowers resemble those of the calla lily and the showy part of the flower features a white, hoodlike sheath (known as a spathe) which resembles a white flag of surrender.

The main requirements are space and cold nights (and cold nights are most definitely not a problem in this country!)
