Where is the dead body?
That is the first question people are asking when they smell the stench at the intersection of Kings Mountain and Greer roads in Woodside. Right now dozens of voodoo lilies are blooming on the corner, and the exotic looking purple flowers may look attractive, but they stink like rotting flesh in order to attract flies. Growing up to 3 feet high, the plants are much shorter and more common than another stinky plant called corpse flower. (This caption ran with a Kate Daly photo in the print edition.)
