'Charlotte's Web' is a small hosta which I've had since Autumn 2011. The leaves have heavily streaked green and white foliage. It's a sport of Doug Beilstein's Breeder's Choice seedling - 'Chi-town Classic'. Mine is trying to stabilize. I separated out a large part of it in 2012 and I need to do it again. Please feel free to share your pictures of this hosta.

ViolaAnn, how large is your Charlotte's web? I just received one from Giantland Hostas and it sure doesn't look like the Charlotte's web that I've had in the past. The petioles are 10-12" tall.

It's currently a sizeable mound, I would guess maybe 15" diameter. I'd go measure it but I'm currently in Copenhagen airport awaiting a flight to Trondheim, Norway. Much of mine has stabilized and I need to lift it and separate it, but haven't had time to do it yet this spring.
