That's probably Peter Mcrohan.  Tall guy with a mustache and usually wearing a cowboy hat.  He grows them in Murietta.  They are dry grown and its hot as Hades in Murietta this time of year.  VERY drought tolerant bulbs!

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
