Well, for a review of what's blooming here in the Chicago area--in my  yard: 
Arilbred irises (complex hybrids of oncocyclus, regelia and tall bearded 
heritage);  Arisaemas triphyllum, tortuosum, and nepenthoides (in a very 
sheltered spot) sikokianum, sikotak,and dracontium , a variegated solomon's 
seal; Allium karataviense, and one of the larger globe types;

Phyllostachys nigra (a very small piece) after surviving -15° F. 
Chionodoxa luciliae (all done= sardensis?)

The other lilies:  crinums, eucomis and small glads still surviving at the 
drip line under the eaves but not blooming for another month at least. 
A small ornithogalum white  and small, unidentified as to species  blooming 
in various places.

My Zantedeschia albomaculata died .  It did well at - 10 but couldn't 
manage -15 maybe because  it  set seed. Good luck to anybody pushes zones.
