late planting of gladiolas

I live in Southern New Mexico. Is it too late to plant gladiolas? I just found the bulbs for sale in a garden shop, but thought they were supposed to be planted in fall or winter.

It depends on the type of glad you purchased. They are most likely summer-flowering grandiflora glads, and can be planted now for summer bloom.
