What about Big Mama and Sague?  Those are two of my favorites.  
Why....because they do well even in an adverse situation.  Big Daddy was one 
of the first that I bought and it has to compete with brillo pad roots of a 
birch tree and does great.  Sague, planted in full sun and basically bakes in 
clay soil but reached a horizontal measurement of three and a half feet in 
just two years.  I don't know how, I think it is amazing.  Won't go into any 
of the rest here......well except for Patriot which is my favorite of the 
white edged hostas.  Everyone who sees it wants to know where they can get 
one.  N.

BTW Chick, congratulations on being so mature at such a young age.
