Hosta 'Akebono'

"Plant is one received by Gus Krossa from Japan and sent to Dr Karel Hensen, Wageningen Botanic Garden, Netherlands in 1967. A herbarium identified incorrectly by Hensen as H. tsushimensis. Identification from a dried specimen is difficult but this taxon is similar to a glaucous, blue-green cultivar which has been found in North American gardens where it is mistakenly labeled H. densa. This is not the same as Akebona Tokudama Gibōshi Kikuchi 1934 = H. 'Tokudama Aureonebulosa'. The name H. 'Akebono' is invalid when applied to Krossa's plant."

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "The few plants that I have seen with this name were identical to H. 'Tokudama Aureonebulosa'."
