The leaves start to die off during middle spring. The bulbs probably only flower after good rain years. I have walked pas this place regularly for about 5 years and only seen them in flower 2012. Flowering during late October-early November in the Little Karoo. Although not as spectacular-the plants are directly related to orchids.
