Flower of the Day – Peace Lily

***

The Peace Lily is a large white, teardrop shaped flower with dark green leaves. It is a fairly tall plant, and I read that it is easy to care for.

I always wondered why it is called a Peace Lily, and here’s what the Wiki article says:

The name peace lily came about, so it is said, because when they were first spied by European explorers, probably growing wild on the banks of a stream, the white flowers reminded them of the traditional “white flag” used to signal no combat or surrender.
