Can A Peace Lily Survive Outside?

ask the expert

Can I take a Peace Lily Plant that has been inside of my home for the past 8 months and plant it outside? Will the Peace Lily Plant survive outside?

  1. Jenni,

    The peace lily is typically considered a houseplant. In warm humid regions, the peace lily(Spathiphyllum) can be planted in a shady border. However there isn’t a region in the United States where the peace lily can survive outside year round.

    Peace lilies are found naturally in damp tropical forests in places like Costa Rica, Panama, Columbia and Venezuela.

    My suggestion if you want it outside would be to place the potted peace lily in the shadeduring the warm months but take it inside during the cold months.

    For more information got the FlowerShopNetwork Newsletter Caring For Peace Lilies.

    Can a peace lilly survive in a UK summer outside?

  4. It depends on where you live. Peace lilies can not survive in plant hardiness zone above zone 9. Therefore you would need to live in a zone 9 or 10. In the United kingdom those zones can be found along parts of the coast line of Ireland, Scotland and England. You would need to check your local hardiness map to determine exactly what your hardiness zone is.

  5. Just brought a peace lily plant home today to southeast Florida. Ive been reading the comments about how it has to be inside during the cold months. Could you please tell me how much light it needs so I know if it needs to be near a window. Also, how often to water it? Thank you kindly!

  6. oops! I meant to say that I plan to keep it in a shaded area outside during the summer months and bring it in during the cold/cooler months.
    Thanks again!

  7. Terri, a peace lily will do well indoors during the winter. Here is another post that has LOTS of great info on how to take care of peace lilies, including lighting and water requirements. They are very tolerant plants; you should have no trouble, but let us know if you do!

  8. Mandy, thank you very much! :-)

    I PLANTED MINE OUTSIDE AND IT COMES BACK EVERY SUMMER. I LIVE IN SOUTH CAROLINA. IT WILL DIE IN THE WINTER AND COMPLETLY GO AWAY

  10. A friend watched my peace lily for-6 weeks for me, it was kept outside under a shade tree seem to be doing well, but all the sudden she realized the leaves were being chewed up. When I brought it home. I cut all the chewed leaves off figuring whatever was doing it stays at her house. Well they are chewed on again what natural way can I get rid of whatever bug it is? I do not see anything on it

  11. JJ,
    You might try insecticidal soap from your local garden center.
