Peace Lily, is a very popular indoor houseplant. It
is a clump-growing herbaceous perennial which produces white flowers which
look like the hood of a cobra. Leaves are shiny and glossy, attractive even
with no spathes.
Peace lilies are sturdy plants with glossy, dark green oval leaves that narrow
to a point. The leaves rise directly from the soil.
The long-lasting flowers start out pale green and slowly turn creamy
white as they open.
Keep the leaves clean with water washes to remove dust and dirt. Peace Lily
can attract mites, scales and mealy bugs so cleaning will help keep these
