Plant Biography

Spathiphyllum ‘Sebastiano’ is a cultivar derived from the broader species Spathiphyllum, commonly known as the Peace Lily. The Peace Lily originates from the tropical rainforests of Central and South America, where it has been an integral part of local ecosystems for centuries. The genus name, Spathiphyllum, is derived from Greek words “spathes” (spathe) and “phyllon” (leaf), referring to the spathe-like bract that surrounds its flower.

Cultivated for its attractive foliage and striking inflorescence, the Peace Lily has a history intertwined with human culture and horticulture. Its resilience and air-purifying qualities led to its popularity as an indoor plant in the 20th century. ‘Sebastiano,’ a specific cultivar, likely emerged from selective breeding efforts to enhance the Peace Lily’s visual appeal.

As a symbol of peace and tranquillity, the Peace Lily has been embraced for its elegance and positive influence on indoor environments. Its botanical history encompasses both its native origins and its significance as a cherished and widely cultivated houseplant worldwide.
