Did you buy them potted from store or bare root through the mail? If you bought them potted, you probably have a pretty good chance to see them the first year. If you bought them bare root in the fall via mail, I usually figure I have a 70% chance I'll see at least a small scape with a few blooms. If I plant them early enough in the spring, I think it's more like 50% chance I get blooms that year on a double fan. The odds are higher if you buy from certain dealers that make sure they have the very best soil and send the very best plants. Also, the farther north the seller, often times the smaller (and later) the fans come, so that can make a difference, too.
I'm in a colder climate than you, though, so your mileage may vary.
