Wide, dark green margins stand in sharp contrast to the bright yellow centers in early spring. As summer approaches, the centers become more chartreuse when plants are grown in heavier shade or lighter yellow if they are grown in more sun. Impressive variegation, thick leaf substance, and a strong growth rate. Showy red speckled petioles that bleed up into the leaves. Dark lavender flowers appear on reddish green 28" scapes in midsummer. Hosta 'Island Breeze' is a sport of H. 'Paradise Island'.
