I am assuming, then, that you live in the desert.

If you can find a shady place or provide shade for the corms they can be planted at any time of year.

Pay attention that you have provided good soil and keep them well watered.

I test the moisture content of the soil about an inch deep. If the soil holds together by squeezing a handful it is moist enough. If the soil does not hold together you need to water.
