History & Background
Riverbend Nursery is a progressive container grower of quality perennials, herbs, groundcovers, ornamental grasses, seasonal color and vegetables. A Wholesale Only grower, Riverbend sells to independent garden centers, landscapers, and distributors. Riverbend Nursery primarily services the Mid-Atlantic States. Our main facility is situated on 100 acres in Riner, Virginia and is located in the southwestern portion of the state. The scenic Little River surrounds the property on three sides in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
Fifty eight acres are utilized for production; 31 acres in container crops and 7 in field production. A total of over 2.5 million containers are grown annually. Over 1100 varieties are produced in both heated and unheated greenhouses and 70% of these are propagated in-house. In 2011 we added a second location 20 minutes away. The 40 acre Childress farm is primarily set up for our LiveRoof portion of the business. The addition of this farm has allowed us to move green roof production here and increase plant production at the main facility.

They are a silent salesperson’s tool to increase sales and customer confidence as they take all the needed information home with them. They are great for landscape customers too, as they can use them as a reference key for their newly installed design.
