Tulipa sprengeri sends it's bulbs down very deep, (in Britain). It is late
up and the last tulip to flower. Allowed to go to it's natural depth I
don't see why it would need to be waterd even in dry summer areas. Perhaps
you could try growing it in a cooler position instead.. I gave up growing
it in a pot. Do you water the later flowering Calochortus with deep bulbs?
I have found them awkward in pots too....
