Some of the taxa in this family (including Brodiaea and Triteleia) will bloom after their leaves start to die. I can't recall if Bloomeria do this or not. I do know that I've seen them blooming as late as June and July. So I'd watch for the end of both bloom (if they're blooming) and leaves as the sign of dormancy.
