An article by Warren I. Pollock in
Hosta Journal (1985 Vol. 16) states that, "In a November
11, 1976 letter, Smith stated that 'Blue Lagoon' is his provisional name for
the H. x tardiana numbered TF2x4. In
1977, however, the name
'Dorset Blue' was officially registered this hosta on behalf of Eric
Paul Aden. .."
