Too late to plant summer blooming bulbs?

sunil005June 20, 2010

Hi All,

My wife ordered a summer blooming bulbs variety pack, which contains Caladiums, Calla Lilies, Dahlias, Elephant Ears and Gladiolus. The pack arrived 2 days ago. Given that tomorrow (June 21st) is the first official day of summer we are wondering, is it too late to plant these bulds? We are in Colorado, zone 5.

If it is too late, can these bulbs be stored for next year?

Thanks in advance ... :-)

It's not that late.
I would just plant them since they are already here.
What would you do with them if you don't plant them?
They might be a little late, but at least you'll get to enjoy them.
