Snowdrops have a reputation for not surviving being dried out - as when 
sold in bags in shops.

The story always is to move them "in the green", i.e. with leaves. I 
don't believe that is a good thing.

But where they thrive (here in England) they will spend Summer in moist 
ground, which never gets above 20C.

You may have the another problem with Winter not being cold enough.

Over to the California natives - doomed enterprise?
