Snowdrop bulbs: too late?

Someone asked about planting tulip bulbs this late, and the answer was go ahead. What about the snowdrop bulbs that I forgot until yesterday when I noticed that the ones still in the ground are already putting out green foliage. Is there any chance the ones I left in the sack can catch up, or is it hopeless?

Definitely hopeless if you don't plant them.

RE: Snowdrop bulbs: too late?

Yes, plant them. If they haven't gone bad in the bag from dehydration and/or fungus, they should be able to grow roots and survive just fine. I would think the worst thing would be that you might not get flowers the first year.
