Buried Amaryllis and Urginea

Dear all:

Has anyone ever observed Amaryllis belladonna and Urginea maritima flowering when the bulbs are completely buried?

When we purchased our home here in Yuma in 2011, I planted Urginea in the front yard and Amaryllis in shadier spots in the back yard.  At that time, they were planted with the upper one-quarter to one-third of the bulb exposed.  Since then, repeated sandstorms have buried the bulbs and I have basically adjusted my gardening to the increased elevation.  The bulbs leaf out every winter, but don't bloom; they do bloom elsewhere in southern Arizona.

Is there any hope, or is it time to excavate around them?
