Try Telos Rare Bulbs this summer (they are out of stock at the moment, and
besides this isn't bulb shipping season). They may also be able to give you
advice on which bulbs might survive in your conditions.

The other thing to do is check the Sources list on the wiki. Just go to the
Wiki contents page and look for the link to Sources.

There used to be some commercial sources for western North America lily
seeds, but I'm not aware of any at the moment. 

I garden in San Jose in an oak woodland, similar to your climate but the
summers are not as brutal. Even here I doubt that I could get any native
lilies to survive without some supplemental irrigation in summer...

Good luck!
