[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Spathiphyllum wallisii is one of thirty six species in a genus of tropical evergreens. It was discovered in the late 19th century growing wild in Central America. The species has been improved by the larger hybrids "Mauna Loa”, named after Hawaiian volcano, and the even larger “Sensation”, which are both popular indoor plants.
These elegant ariods produce striking, long-lasting white flowers, giving the plant its common name of Peace lily or White sails. Scientific names are also often based on an association of ideas. The botanist who named this plant obviously thought that its white flower spathe looked like a leaf-hence, in Greek, Spathiphyllum.
