I am sure that these are the easytogrowbulb Urgineas.  That is one of their markets.  

They are grown in Murietta California which is hot and dry!!!  In fact, they are grown without any irrigation.  I wrote a story about them for the San Diego newspaper last year (one of several I've written on the topic).  You can see it here http://utsandiego.com/news/2012/…

Cynthia, where did you see a video?

There's a little associated video on the website, and the soil does seem to be as sandy as the beach would be.  If only they had blue flowers....-Cynthia Mueller
