Hosta for sun

I'm looking for a white flowering Hosta that tolerates sun. Can you suggest any good varieties? I live between Gettysburg, PA and Westminster, MD.

Thanks for writing. I don't know of any white-flowering hostas that will thrive in full sun --- most sun-tolerant hostas only seem to do well in part sun otherwise their leaves start to get sunburn and look bad, especially in your region where summers can get so hot.

If white flowers are important to you, maybe there are sun-loving, white-flowering perennials that would be a good substitute?
