Corpse Flower Comes to Life

Can you stand the stench?

The corpse flower known as "big Bucky" is blooming on the UW campus, and folks are lining up to see and smell it.

The stinky flower started opening around 12:30 Thursday afternoon. (just in time for people to enjoy during the lunch hour.)

How bad does it smell? Well, there's a reason they call it a corpse flower... Let's put it that way.

If you want to see and smell "big Bucky" in person, the greenhouse will be open until midnight Thursday, and from 9:00am til 10:00pm Friday.

Need directions? Just follow your nose.
