Planting lily of valley, caladium and cala lily now?

Conshohocken, PA

Hi folks,

I bought bags of bulbs for lily of the valley, caladium and cala lily back in early spring. Life got in the way and I forgot to plant them.

What now? Can I plant them now (in late june)? Will they 'keep' til next spring? Is there another time of year that's best to plant them (eg, in fall?)

I'm in zone 6b if that makes any difference.

I would plant them now, but I would put the caladiums and callas into pots.

Callas don't flower so much when planted into the ground here. I think it takes the soil too long to warm up. Generally I pot up my callas by Memorial Day weekend.
