Choosing Trees & Shrubs for Your Virginia Landscape

At Nature Hills Nursery, Virginia is for plant lovers who want to experience the true power of nature. Virginia has a varying climate that generally gets warmer as you move closer to the Atlantic Coast. Regions such as the Piedmont and Tidewater Plains also experience different weather and soil conditions. Our horticulturalists will help you find the best Virginia plants for the Shenandoah Valley, the Eastern Shore and everywhere in-between.


In addition to recommendations of what plants will prosper — sorted below by categories and bestsellers — we also provide educational resources for Virginia growers. Visit the Garden Blog to learn how to plant Hydrangea shrubs or head to the Plant Care Library for bare root watering and mulching advice. Hundreds of YouTube videos and articles are available with tips that have been proven to work. On the product pages, you’ll find thoughts about what plants pair best with each other.
