Tulips should be planted in the fall\early winter for spring bloom because they must undergo a long period of cool temperatures to spark the biochemical process that causes them to flower.

However, this does not mean you can't try planting your bulbs now and hope for the best. I have read stories where some of your neighbors in the northeast have planted tulips and daffodils in March with great success. Yours may or may not bloom and they will be late bloomers if they do.
