Usages

Garden Use
Peace lily is a tropical plant best suited to be an understory plant in conditions with moist soil and good drainage. In the garden, the appearance can be altered under different conditons. Provided more shade, this plant will produce striking, dark green foliage. With more light, white flowers are produced that contrast the darkness of its leaves.
