Jim, I was just about to write to the list - I have ten D. maritima in bloom, about half the total number of bulbs but many, including some now in flower, are still juvenile. The first one I received is from Boyce Thompson Arboretum where the climate and elevation are similar to mine and where D. maritima could number into the hundreds among mature eucalyptus trees and others. That bulb has increased to three and its inflorescence is the tallest rising to some three feet. Bulb size is akin to that of a soccer ball. Mine received about 2.7 inches of rain last month. And I remain certain that the bulb photo submitted by Don Hoel taken in the Atlas Mountains near Marrakech (on the wiki Mystery Bulbs page) is this bulb. Would love to hear other opinions on this from list members who grow this plant. I'd not expect this plant to flower in Maryland. Congratulations!
