My peace lily has green flowers instead of white. What is the cause of this? I have it in front of my patio door. It only gets sun in the morning.

This is common.
The spathe starts out green, then turns white and as it ages it generally turns green again.
This color change is due to chlorophyll, plants absorb sunlight through the chlorophyll molecule in the photosynthesis process.
The spathe is actually a leaf so it preforms photosynthesis.
