I have also enjoyed growing several pots of A belladonna from various crosses of that distribution and while none have bloomed yet (they grow indoors under lights) I do have one with foliage that is variegated, and it is forming an offset with the same variegation.   It gets the best light I can give it (under t5s).   I don't know how unusual variegated A. belladonna plants are but it is both consistent and attractive.  

In z6/7 NY where we have had temps into the mid teens at night but it is thawing again today.   Bulbs outside are sleeping or having their foliage frozen back but Dierama foliage is still green so far (of those I have not covered up with wood chips) and violas and a few Matthiola maritima are still in bloom.  Indoors various oxalis are blooming along with Hesperantha hantamensis and the first flower of Walleria gracilis for the season.
