Many colchicums should do well in coastal California; numerous 
species are native to the Mediterranean, including  (in addition to 
the ones Jane mentioned) C. bivonae, C. boissieri, C. parlatoris, C. 
macrophyllum, and on and on.

The most satisfactory winter-/spring-blooming colchicum here has been 
C. szovitsii and its cultivars such as 'Tivi' and 
'Vardaovit'.  Reliably perennial, with relatively large and 
substantial flowers that are usually effective for several weeks from 
March into April.

another "significant winter storm"
