Saffron crocus are a fall blooming bulb.  One of the bulb suppliers (like
Brecks) offered it a few years back but I haven't seen it offered since. 

How well it will do in western PA depends on how bad a winter you are
having on that side of the mountains.  We can grow a lot of warmer
weather type plants here in Philly.  It is often a gamble what the
weather will be like but we have grown cotton by putting it in the
hottest corner of our yard which is up against a white wall (reflects
heat really well).  I'm sure you could get the growing stats from the
bulb supplier.
