Dear Lauw,

your observation is right. Many years the autumns rains come very late here
and summer extends for all October, but the Sternbergia come up just because
the night temps are cooler. However, when  good rainfalls happen in
September the flowering is much showy and rich, as the plants have time to
send out roots before to flower.

Jim, you have a good sense of humor ! I didn't know you were so deep in the
intricated world of Italian suffixes !!
The word for 'little spring' doesn't exist, as it's just my creation.
Anyway, in the case we would use 'Primaverina' :-)
