Peace Lily in bloom

Peace Lily

Spathiphyllum wallisii

Synonyms: Arum Lily, Spath.

The common Peace Lilly (Spathiphyllum wallisii) is one of the most commonly grown houseplants, known for its lush, glossy leaves and upright white flowers. There are a range of cultivars for this plant too, such as the smaller growing ‘Petite’, the dark-leaved ‘Dario’ or the variegated ‘Picasso’.  Possibly the best indoor plant for those who have not had much success with other species, as a Spathiphyllum will wilt when dehydrated, telling you exactly when you need to water it.

Outdoors the Peace Lily is also very useful. It’s a top choice for planting in areas of deep shade, where little else will grow. If the soil is good, these plants will form large, lush clumps. Maintenance is minimal. Simply cut off old flower stems and remove dead leaves from around the base.

Peace Lilies are not a true lily, so are not acutely toxic to cats. However, all parts of the plant are toxic for dogs, cats, humans and other animals if ingested. Ingestion is rare as animals are usually disinterested or put off by the taste.

Applications

  • Indoor
  • Shade areas
  • Balcony/patio plant
  • Potted specimen

Care

Very easy to grow. Peace Lilies cannot handle much direct sun light, so best grown outdoors in full shade or dappled light. Chose a bright position close to a window if grown indoors. Regular fertilizing with products such as Troforte and Organic Link will produce lush, neat growth.
