I have used Welsh Poppy ( meconopsis cambrica " Frances Perry") to  
cover a large area of  bulbs to include lycoris, tulips and some dwarf 
narcissus.  It doesn't seem to interfere with any early spring growth of 
these bulbs and the spikes of lycoris flowers punch right through   
without a problem.  My question to the group is what to use with the  
early summer growing foliage of colchicum's once the foliage dies back 
leaving the bar ground that John references.
