Fall bulbs usually bloom in the spring after spending 12 or more weeks developing roots. If you do not plant the bulbs, they will die. If you do plant them now they may develop roots and leaves but they probably won't flower this year. But, they will store energy this year and will most likely bloom next spring. I think it's worth the effort to plant them now. Hope they reward you next spring!
