Has anyone tried these cultivars in the Midwest? And if so what was your experience with them?

Dave, I grew Caravan years ago in Michigan and it did well for me. I am trying it again at a new location but they are still small this year. Quintessence also grew well previously, but at least in my limited sample, the photo was better than the flowers - but no problems with the vigor of the bulbs.

All of them are nice however do not have the vigor and stamina of Silk Road or Silver Scheherazade. Sarabande is another really strong one. The markings of Luminaries and Quintessence are much more pronounced in the Pacific Northwest, not as strong here, but still beautiful.
