Resons about growing Cape Bulbs in the South

I would see two potentially serious problems with growing many Cape bulbs 
in Louisiana:

1.  Excessive precipitation

2.  High night-time temperatures in summer

That said, Crinum bulbispermum appears to absolutely love to grow in 
Louisiana.  Many Cape bulbs should do well there, but those sensitive to 
moisture in their dormant season probably will not.
