|The bulbs you mention should be planted in the fall for spring bloom the following year. It's too late to plant them now. They need 14 weeks of cold temperatures in order to develop roots. Planting them now might encourage them to sprout but without roots, they won't live long. They all prefer to grow in full sunshine.
