Dear Alberto,
 I grow a lot of Gynandriris simulans (and G Setifolia), now in the
genus Moraea. They origiate from the Cape. In our medit climat they are
definitely wintergrowers: they are most at ease at 15-25cm deep,
sprouting end of August, during the winter they make upto 250cm (100")
long single leaf.  A series of flowersappear from the end of March which
open  a few hours every afternoon. I am curious to know how this opening
of the flowers is controlled; sun or overcast makes no difference and
some days they stay closed?? Makes a lot of seed and flowers within 2
years from sowing
It may be that in your climate they become summergrowing or are we
talking about a different species? 

Alberto Castillo a *crit :
 Yes, Mary Sue, Gynandriris simulans is a summer grower. See the flowering
> times in the original message. It will demand a very dry winter.
