Oh don't go and buy any! If you want some..I can dig few up and get you started ....
If you are unsure....try them in good size container/planter at first..if you get flowers, chop them off so they don't seed all over the place.
Plants themselves are not big and in that wise they would be fine in smaller space. At least when they are in container...they 'should' not spread that easily...issue would be 'only' with seeding.
They would not need any fancy compost neither..just some garden soil and they would be happy..

How do you think they'd like a bright indoor windowsill?

No idea..worth of trying...there is many outdoor bulbs that are grown indoors. You might need to move them to 'rest' outdoors when they are dormant and bring them in again just as they start coming through again. So that they do experience the seasonal changes that tricker its growth cycle.
