Peace Lily Plant


Peace Lily Houseplants are beautiful indoor houseplants with large, glossy, oval, dark green leaves and impressive white “spathes” (flowers) that last for weeks. Spathes may be green, which reminds us that they are really modified leaves. A Peace Lily or Spathiphyllum originated in tropical forests around the world where it grew close to the forest floor in the shade of the larger plants. This helps explain why Peace Lily houseplants are one of very few indoor plants that can bloom even in medium to low light. NASA lists Peace Lily Houseplants as one of the best plants to clean the air of harmful toxins such as benzene, formaldehyde, and carbon monoxide.

These plants are considered poisonous and should be kept away from pets and children. Read more about common houseplants that are poisonous in Don’t Feed Me To Your Cat! A Guide to Poisonous Houseplants
