Hosta 'Soft Shoulders'
 

Tony Avent of Plant Delights Nursery in North Carolina registered this cross of H. 'Swoosh' × H. 'Tardiflora' in 1995. It forms a 13 inch high mound that spreads about 43 inches in width. The leaves are narrowly ovate, moderately wavy with smooth texture. Its lavender flowers bloom in August.

The Book of Little Hostas (2010) says: "A larger plant that needs space to achieve its potential. Ideal for the back of a larger raised bed and in the woodland garden."

Similar hostas include H. 'Dark Star'.
