Help. I ordered Orange Glory Butterfly plants online and they showed up today. However, they are seeds or bulbs. The research I have done so far says to plant them with the tops protruding just above ground. I don't know which end is the top.
I'm new at this so go easy one me.

Asclepias tuberosa to the rest of us.

Which way up? If you are not sure, plant the bulb on its side: its stem will find its own way up.

See www.homeguides.sfgate.com for planting instructions. It is a rhizome, not a bulb. Plant thickest part uppermost with an inch protruding from soil.
