About Us

Northernair Hostas is the brainchild of Monty & Julie Carlson, who share a life-long love of nature and gardening. Monty’s background in the nursery and greenhouse industry led him to his passion for hostas. Monty then introduced Julie to hostas and hybridizing, which developed into a mutual obsession that we both enjoy.

In addition to our addiction to hostas, we also are golfing fanatics, and love to fish, (including the great Minnesota pastime of ice fishing).
