Tulipa saxatilis perennializes in my garden in the SF Bay Area and does exceptionally well in a mild winter climate. After more than 5 years in the ground, I have large clumps in several areas in the open and under trees. This species spreads by underground stolons. No pests or diseases; the snails and slugs leave it alone. Some of the clumps get summer water, others very little, and in any case, the tulips appear reliably each spring. Mine begin to bloom in mid-March.
