AC Sundancer Poplar - Populas x ACWS151 A new hardy upright male selection by AAFC-AESB Agroforestry Development Centre, Indian Head, SK from a tree originating from a Centre cross between P. x ‘Walker’ and P. x Canadensis ‘serotina de selys’. Sundancer has shown resistance to disease and insect pests such as poplar bud gall mite, cytospora, septoria canker and melamspora leaf rust. It is cold hardy and drought tolerant. It is not likely to spread by root suckers is widely adapted for planting in the Canadian prairies. Its hardiness should be trialed in Chinook conditions.
Advance Upright Aspen -  Populas tremuloides ‘Advance’ We made this selection approximately 15 years ago from a group of trembling aspen seedlings.  The growth habit is very upright – much like a Tower Poplar, and the trunk colour is very white.  Growth is vigorous and requires no pruning.  Very transplantable and not susceptible to shoot-tip blight.  This must be Spring dug.
Trojan Green Ash - Fraxinus pennsylvanica ‘Durcd’ A Rick Durand introduction from Winkler Manitoba. It is an extremely hardy seedless male tree with a very upright and compact growth habit. We believe it is the hardiest of the male seedless strains of Green Ash. It is an excellent choice for spaces that require limited horizontal spread.
Patmore Elm - Ulmus Americana ‘Patmore’ Exclusive to Advance Nursery Co. Ltd.  A vigorous upright selection of Brandon. This variety is considerably more pyramidal than the Brandon and has the ability to grow a dominant leader.
Navigator Pear - Pyrus x ‘DurPSN303’ An extremely hardy selection by Rick Durand of Portage La Prairie, MB.  Excellent as an ornamental and performs better in higher PH soils.

Gladiator Flowering Crabapple - Malus x ‘DurLeo’ A Rick Durand selection of an attractive hardy rosybloom crabapple.  It has a stately appearance with its tidy upright crown form and dazzling glossy burgundy-purple leaves accompanied by a profusion of bright pink flowers in the spring followed by small reddish-purple ornamental fruit.  Gladiator has a high resistance to both fire blight and apple scab.
Casino Apricot - Prunus mandshurica x ‘DurGarfield’ Exclusive to Advance Nursery, Casino is very hardy with high quality fruit that is oval to slightly oblong and freestone.  The yellow fruit ripens in August with a red tinge on the blush.  It is semi-self-pollinating but will set a heavier crop if it is cross-pollinated with another apricot or Nanking Cherry.
Juliet Cherry -  Prunus cerasus ‘Juliet’ A University of Saskatchewan introduction that is an ideal cherry for colder climates.  Its white spring blossoms provide an attractive display that are followed by clusters of dark red, sour-sweet fruit that ripen in late summer.  Juliet has an excellent fresh eating cherry with high sugar content and is also great for processing.  The plant produces few suckers and is self-pollinating.
Summer Frost - Maackii Amurensis A Manitoba selection by Advance Nursery and Rick Durand.  Summer Frost is a very hardy compact tree for tough sites.  Only reaching about 15’ tall, it tolerates severe dryness, cold and heavy soils.  The unfolding spring buds evolve into silvery and showy summer flowers with a frost-like appearance.  Exclusive to Advance Nursery.
Signature Japanese Lilac -  Syringa reticulate ‘Sigzam’ This new tree-form lilac introduction blooms 1 - 2 weeks later than Ivory Silk, extending the lilac season.  Its white flowers are formed in round panicles rather than conical form of Ivory Silk’s flowers.  This variety is more upright and compact than Ivory Silk and its foliage has a bronze fall colour.  We believe that it may be slightly hardier than Ivory Silk.  Highly recommended new introduction.
