Are peace lilies a perennial?

The peace lily is an evergreen perennial that grows as a bushy clump with simple, narrow, shiny green leaves that can be up to 1 foot long. Its true flowers are tiny and cover a greenish-white stalk called a spadix, which is surrounded by a single white to cream-colored leaf, or bract, that's carried on a tall stem.

In this regard, do peace lilies need sun?

The plant may not be getting enough water or the right kind of light. Water it 2 to 3 times a week, preferably with filtered or distilled water. Peace Lilies need low lighting, but they won't bloom if it is completely dark. If necessary, move your plant to a brighter spot, but keep it out of direct sunlight.

Why does my peace lily keep dying?

Exposure to direct light can cause the leaves to turn yellow; showing a burnt appearance. Water, whether too much or too little, can cause peace lilies to wilt and the leaf edges to turn yellow or brown. Clean the drainage holes and drain the excess water, then back off the watering until the plant is slightly dry.
