List of sun-loving hostas?

Hi there! I was hoping to find a list of sun-loving hostas. We are finishing up a front deck on our house and would like to accent the stairs and corners with some sun-lovers. All my hostas have always been in the shade so this is a new hosta situation for me.

plantiginea.. 6 inch white gardenia scented ... and takes full blistering sun ... in your zone anyway ....

and a bunch of her progeny .... like guacamole..

The list is exactly what I was looking for. We're going to plant an ornamental tree to provide some cover for most of the hostas.

I appreciate it!
