West edge of town. From Hwy 40, just west of the grain elevator, turn south. You'll see the lily ahead, on the right, just past the train tracks.

Parkside - Home of the World's Largest Lily.

World's Largest Lily

Flaming Red Giant was erected in 1990 by Ralph Korody, as a symbol of community recognition to a pioneer and long time resident of our district, DR. A. J. (Bert) Porter. This represents one of many varieties developed at Honeywood Nursery.

Dr. Porter founded the Honeywood Nursery business in 1934. The Flaming Red Giant stands in proud acclamation of Dr. Porter, who made Parkside "Home of the Lily."
