Dear Mary
         As Paul says it is normal for plants like Brodiaeas, Triteleias, Dichelostemmas, Conantheras, Leucocoryne, etc. to flower after the leaves have partial or totally dried. But, in this humid climate none of them all do this. Instead, they retain their green foliage long after they have flowered. This obviously points to an adaptation to lack of late spring/summer water in the wild.
