Dichelostemma ida-mae is a species native to western North America and 
should do well in Fresno.  These plants are also called Brodiaea 
sometimes.  They might be selling a selected clone or strain of D. ida-mae 
under the name Firecracker Flower.

Dichelostemma congestum is hardy here, as are Brodiaea californica and the 
terrific Triteleia ixioides scabra and T. hyacinthina.  Grow them all!
