Not necessarily.  Here in the desert southwest, summer is our rainy season.  Sometimes we get more than half of our annual rainfall in the months of July and August.  Arils and arilbreds do, however, need good drainage. 
This photo shows part of the garden where the McAllister introductions Dana has been posting originated.
Thanks for the image, Sharon. As they say, a picture is worth a whole lot and all that. ;) I don't have conditions like those, but I can provide a bed with very good drainage -- and I can continue to improve it substantially, if necessary. I'll go back to lurking now, but I have to tell you all: I am enjoying the images immensely.
