Peace Lily From Europe – Spathiphyllum Figaro

The Peace Lily is only one of the many varieties of house plants to choose for use indoors to liven up a room. One disturbing area is… you may never see some of these houseplants. Simply because the local nursery or garden center doesn’t want to try something new or they just may not know about it.

Here’s another Spathiphyllum to consider. I know I can hear you already…. Another Spathiphyllum… isn’t a spath, is a spath, is a spath. To some extent you’re correct.

Peace Lily care and pest control is basically the same and they all fall into the plant category of top air cleaning houseplants. Plus, all of them have green leaves except for the occasional variegation and white flowers.


As new plants are introduced they are being bred more specifically for certain characteristics or market needs. Spathiphyllum ‘Figaro’ fills the need for a flowering, dark green, large leaf variety in 10-14 inch pots currently not available today, on top of all that it’s durable.

It’s a Dutch Hybrid developed by K.P. Holland. Since Figaro’s release in Europe during 1998, it has carved out a significant niche in the “Florist quality” Spathiphyllum Market.

Grown primarily in 8 and 10 inch pots for use by Interiorscapers and for Flower Shop sales across Europe. This award-winning selection received the award for the BEST FLOWERING PLANT at the Dutch Horti-Fair in 1999.

This peace lily has made the trip across the Atlantic and can be found in select or more upscale garden centers.
