  • Peace lilies are typically an indoor potted plant suited for low light areas. They are tropical to sub tropical. 30's is far too cold for them, they will freeze and die. When I consider a new plant, first I learn about where it does best and how to take care of it. Here are a couple links for you.



    I would dig them up, pot in fresh houseplant potting medium and see if they revive themselves over the winter months inside.

    Naomie is correct, but I will add that you need to cut them down also. The plant's trying to save it's leaves and it's taking a lot of strength to do that. Also they are a shade plant. Looks like it got way too much sun.

    Place about 8” of hay over the area, make sure it cov completely. Remove it as soon as the weather breaks in the spring.

    Bring them inside for the winter. They will absolutely die . I don't care what you put on them

      This plant is about 4 foot wide...and already shut down. I don’t think they ever brought it inside,and none of the other people here do either. Maybe I am misnaming it. Neighbor has a Cana lily that comes up every year!and a banana palm! Awesome. But Hostas!my favorite do not do well here,even in the shade.

      I think thats what they do here too. I will have to ask the many neighbors.

    Thanks friends....i am calling these peace lilies!everyone here in woodburn has them planted outdoors. Mine are shutting down for the winter. They were in the ground several winters from the owners before. It is now a huge plant. No not too much sun!they are shutting down. I guess I am concerned about Whether or not to cut them down. I read a lot about leave plants like they are over winter ,they will shelter the roots. Then I read ,no,they could rot,and get mildew. So I’m a little confused.

    Bernice H. Go ahead and give it a try. The only time I ever visited the GNW, I saw larger flowers, fruits and vegetables than I had ever seen before. With a rain forest, an ocean, mighty rivers, mountains, rich soil and temperate weather, you live in an immense natural garden. Next Spring, separate and thin out your peace lily. Best wishes 😇🍁

      Thank you...yes they do need separating,they are taking over this tiny garden. I like them better than Hostas! Hostas were my all time favorite,but they haven’t done well here. mine or anyone else’s. The lilies are very tropical looking here.
