There is a Spathiphyllum growing around the pond in the Princess of Wales greenhouse at Kew Gardens which intrigues me greatly; when flowering it has a strong smell of cloves, very striking. The leaves are broader than the normal cultivated spaths one sees everywhere for sale and rather tougher in consistency. I wonder if anyone has an idea as to its identity (perhaps Peter Boyce?). Despite searching around the plants I could not find any identifying label. Photos attached...
