I suspect it gets the occasional summer thunderstorm in its natural habitat 
also.   I had one once planted with some crinum that got watered weekly thruout 
the summer.   It grew great but never flowered.   Until the year I let those 
crinums go dry.   Then it came just fine.   One or the other I guess!

It thrives in old gardens inTasmania, but I am not sure about the amount of 
summer rainfall there

Maybe Jim Lykos can give us the final word on this...
