Bulbs can be planting in mid- to late- fall after the soil has cooled.
There is not a hard and fast 'latest date', but can be done up until the ground freezes for the winter. That said, occasionally there are unpredictable days of thaw in the winter and they could even be planted then, but the bloom will likely occur later in the growing season than usual.
