Help! I just 15 japanese butterbur plants, just bulbs, they have a point on one side and the other is cut flat. I'm just not sure if the pointy end of the bulb goes down or up? I dont want to plant them wrong...

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Most bulbs are planted with the pointy end facing up toward the sky, its the pointy end that will grow and bloom. Otherwise I dont know anything about japanese butterbur (but it sounds beautiful!)
