California bulbs in the deep South

I am trying to grow California bulbs in the deep South.  I have tried before with poor results as I put them in a pot with regular soil.  This time, I have them in a large pot with well draining soil.  After they died back for the summer, I put a round bucket over the square planter for the summer.  So the only rain the planter gets is what gets in at the corners where ther circular bucket and square pot meet.  Should I cover it more completely?  Should I occassionally allow it to get summer rain?  When should I remove the bucket?


Thank you for any help or suggestions.
