Hosta 'Aksarben'

This cultivar was developed by Julia Geissler sometime before 1970 and registered on her behalf by Peter Ruh of Ohio in 1988. It is a result of a cross between H. 'Tokudama' ×  H. 'Sieboldiana'. The plant grows to a height of about 2 feet and spreads to 4 feet in diameter. Its heavily corrugated foliage has thick substance and a heavy bloom on both the top and bottom surface. Dense clusters of near white flowers bloom from mid-June into July.

According to The Hostapedia by Mark Zilis (2009), "Despite being one of the oldest of its category ("heavily corrugated, blue-green H. 'Elegans' type "), 'Aksarban' still rates as one of the best. Of course, the name "Aksarban" is "Nebraska" spelled backwards."
