Hot Pots

Does anyone grow California native bulbs in 1 gallon black pot in the Central Valley of California? The growing medium in my pots is becoming much hotter than the native soil where many of my bulbs are planted. Last weekend I made a shade structure of ½" gray PVC pipe and shade cloth, in an attempt to keep the pots cooler. The heat seem to be drying out the stems before they finisher blooming. Any other ideas?
