"I can think of two reasons why some bulbs in Mediterranean climates flower
>in the fall."

The whole process of flowering and seed setting is sustained by water 
obtained from the mother bulbs. The main advantage is that the seed is shed 
at the beginning of the rainy season and has the possibility of a longer 
first season of growth. Also, viability is such seed is not the same as 
spring or summer seed setting bulbs.
