Answer: If the bulbs are sprouting you can try planting them now. This will save them, but they probably won't flower until next year. Bulbs need several weeks in the ground to produce roots before they develop leaves and flowers. Without the roots, they won't be able to take up moisture and nutrients to sustain themselves. If you plant them now they will continue to sprout foliage by drawing on the energy stored in the bulb. With any luck they will develop roots over the next few weeks and will be able to recover the spent energy so they will be ready to bloom and grow next spring. I'd get them into the ground as soon as possible and hope for the best!
