My guess is Undulata Univittata, which for many years was the most frequently planted white centered hosta. Historically popular.....

Good morning, Susan
That is a pretty one! I like all the white in it. It brighten up a spot. Do you plant coleus with your hosta?
Does this one burn badly? LMK

For some reason I never have any luck with coleus. All I have to do is look at it and it dies! Grumbling

*Blush* (oh, good morning!) This Hosta looked good all season, got a little morning sun which gave it the light color. Green Grin!

Hostas Direct has a database and you can pull up plants by characteristics. They have 380 under sun tolerant.
