Spathiphyllum - Peace Lily or Madonna Lily

Genus: Spathiphyllum.

Species: Spathiphyllum.

Common name: Peace Lily or Madonna Lily
Botanic name: Spathiphyllum
Family: Araceae

Often known only by its common name of Peace Lily, there are many cultivars of Spathiphyllum which are essentially quite similar. Some claim to have larger leaves, glossier leaves, longer lasting leaves, better flowers and other attributes, but apart from one that produces a green flower and another that has variegated leaves, they all produce white flowers.

Spathiphyllum is a native of South America and the Indo-Malaysian archipelago. It's a member of the Araceae or arum Family, which also includes Anthurium and Philodendron.
