Dear Mark and Luc, 
Thanks for the encouragement. But indeed there is discrete but interesting
tendency on the move. With my nursery colleague Olivier Filipi (who wrote
recently an excellent book on dry gardening) some landscapers (Jean Jacques
Darboux of Montpellier) and some more enterprising municipal gardeners there
are several projects creating permanent gardens without irrigation using
endemic mediterranean plants. Wintergrowing/summerdormant bulbs fit
naturally into these projects, but also some evergreen bulbous or rhizomatic
species (once established) do very well mediterranean gardens without
 These projects are  too young to judge how they will develop over the
years. To prove our case we need urgently good examples of naturalised
gardens which stood the test of time.
Kind regards
