Flower Spotlight: Peace Lily

Peace lilies are more than just green plants! They are beautiful, versatile and easy to care for. When you’re looking for a beautiful plant to lift someone’s spirit or purify the energy in your home, spaths are the way to go!

Origins & Symbolism

The scientific name of peace lilies is Spathiphyllum. The name derives from the Greek word ‘spath’ which means spoon and ‘phyl’ meaning leaves. This plant grows in Colombia, Venezuela, South America, Central America and Southeast Asia.

Peace lilies are known as the bringers of peace. The white spath represents a white flag which is worldly recognized as a truce signal. They are also known to symbolize prosperity, tranquility and are often given to express sympathy after someone’s passing.

Did You Know?

According to NASA Clean Air Study, peace lilies have air-purifying qualities. They are also said to balance the energies of a room. So, if the energy is feeling a little heavy, place a spath in your home or workplace and breathe in the purified air!

Unlike many people think, the flowers of peace lilies are not the white spathes on top. The flowers are tiny and grow in the spadix. Mind blowing, huh?!

You can find peace lilies that are as little as 6 inches tall to a considerable large 50 inches! Now, that is variety!


The natural habitat of peace lilies is the tropical rainforest. They make wonderful houseplants but you must always keep the soil moist to ensure the survival and happiness of this beauty. Head to your local florist and bring in some positivity and high vibe energy into your home! You’ll see the whole place light up with the presence of the mighty peace lily!

    Can I move my peace lily plant to my glassed in lanai. We live in Wilmington NC

  3. Jeffrey Balch says:

    Peace lilies can survive between 40 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit, but for best growth, 68-85 degrees is recommended. If your lanai gets and cooler than 40 degrees at night, I wouldn’t recommend leaving it there!
