timing for calochortus bulbils

I often go to Oregon and northern California in the spring,  
photographing wildflowers, and sometimes collecting seeds.

  I have seen only two species of calochortus, as they flower later  
than I usually go.

I've been reading Mary Gerritsen's calochortus book and find that some  
of the species produce bulbils.  It would be exciting to find a  
particularly pleasing flower and be able to collect a bulbil from it.   
However, the book does not give precise information about this.

When are bulbils developed enough to be viable?
