no. if you buy & plant them now (where would you find them?)
they will bloom next spring. crocus & daffodils are spring
there *are* some autumn blooming crocus though. maybe you can
find & plant some of that type now.
If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the
Crocosmia are not crocus!
Autum blooming crocus (like saffron) are a bit hard to find. Holland
Bulbs is one company I think has them. I did get some from some
catalogue, but they only see them at the right time for planting. A
google should do it....They are not something most garden centers even
know about. Look for small specialty places.
In addition to what enigma said, beware of buying pots of spring bulbs that
are already blooming. The flowers don't last that long, and then, you're
left with bulbs. They pot, soil & bulbs are way overpriced for what you're

Will they do that ok?

the potted flower prices here are nuts there is no way that i woul
spend 6 to 10 dollars and more for a pot of flowers that has bee
forced and wont last long enough to enjoy them so doug is sure right o
as well if u plant bulbs now they wont have the root base to flower fo
one and also they are spring bloomers as enigma has mentioned. mayb
getting fall crocuses would be an answer otherwise look around you
garden center and see what other bulbs they have to offer u maybe
will find something that u really like. good luck.
I see people buying them at Home Depot and I wonder what's going through
their heads. Hopefully, they want them for centerpieces at a nice dinner in
the next 48 hours, and nothing else. Much of the time, the pots contain
tulips which are going to burst their petals any minute.
You might be able to fool the bulbs regarding the season. This requires
refrigerating them for several weeks, then potting them and placing the
pots in a cool dark space until shoots appear. Even then, the results
are not necessarily as desired; and if they do bloom out of season, the
bulbs are then often worthless for replanting in the ground.
The most important thing, however, is that any bulbs that you find now
are probably not in good condition. They were at their prime last fall
and are likely left-overs that could not be sold.
