...I've planted hostas in the background of my shadow garden where the largest number of Dicentra are growning. The hostas don't begin to emerge until the bloom on the Bleeding Hearts is well past. This year I've cut the foliage back in stages (rather than bringing the Dicentra down to the ground as soon as the leaves begin to look ragged) so the transition is a mild one and leaves no large gaps in the landscape.

The trick with hostas I'd learned from an article at Dave's some years ago, and though I've unfortunately forgotten the author's name, the credit is freely given in the form of success in my garden.
