Purchased 30 days ago, 5"pots to put in soil bed. The blooms are dormant. Can I still plant in the ground. Or return purchase?

They look like they need water. Since they are in small pots, it's important to water every day. They still look like they have some life, so go ahead and trim off dead flowers and plant in soil. Once in the ground they still need regular watering, but not as much as when they were in pots.
