white centered hostas

What are your favorite white centered hostas (hostas like fire and ice -  
center of attraction etc.?  The only one I have that is really thriving is  a 
cutting I got from Glen Williams of his summer music. Which is now a five  
division plant from one division I got three years ago.  This year it is  really 
looking exceptional. I can grow night before xmas and similar plants that  have a 
lot more green in the leaf.  Actually remember me is looking pretty  good 
right now.  Growing slowly but still increasing.  I now have two  divisions 
instead of one which is promising.  
Previous to that every summer music I bought I lost.  A few other  white 
center hostas are holding their own in that they look about the same year  after 
year. Kind of like my great expectations.   Then there are  the ones that look 
worse the longer you have them until you just throw them  out.  The list is 
long as I probably have bought most of  the hostas available with a lot of white 
in the leaf.
Then there are the gold hostas that turn white.  What is your  favorite hosta 
that goes from  gold to white and then DOES NOT turn  brown.  I love them 
when they lighten up but shortly thereafter they  drive me crazy.    Plants like 
gold standard, patriots fire, look  fabulous until the leaves get brown.
Thanks for the information, chris from Braintree, MA
