This beautiful flower attracted my attention in the sub-tropical area of the Winter Garden Glasshouse at Dunedin Botanic Garden on 10 April. Until this morning I didn’t know what it is but after seeing a helpful comment on another blogpost featuring the same flower, I now know the name. Then I found an online page with good info: Peace Lily (Spathiphyllum wallisii).

With the turmoil in Afghanistan it feels a little bit healing to share an image of peace. I’m heartbroken for the suffering of the Afghani people and especially for the women and girls.
Other common names: Dwarf Peace Lily, White Sails, Spathe Flower
~ I love the name ‘White Sails’.
