'Island Breeze' is a sport of 'Paradise Island' with more impressive variegation due to its wider margins, thicker leaf substance and a stronger growth rate. The leaves have wide, dark green margins standing in sharp contrast to the bright yellow centers and are held on red speckled petioles that bleed up into the leaves. The flowers are dark lavender and held on red scapes. Photo courtesy of Walters Gardens, Inc.
