About Our Nursery

Riverbend Nursery is a progressive container grower of quality perennials, herbs, groundcovers, and ornamental grasses. 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.

What Customers Are Saying

I stopped into work (I know better and should never have done that on my day off) and looked at all the plants you shipped. Dang nabbit they look too nice!!! If you are going to keep sending me stuff like that I’m going to be swamped with sales all the time. Now I’ll never get a day off!!! 

Excellent plant quality! My company does landscape design and installation and we buy all our perennials from Riverbend and have never had any issues, the plants are healthy and beautiful. The plant status is always better than landscape quality.” – Roald Seidemann

We have used this company for our landscaping company’s plant needs for years! Beautiful plants every order! Nice people too!” – Bipolar Lightning Bug
