Bluebells Vanished Last Year

I had wood hyacinths,/Hyacinthoides hispanica/, intermixed with Virginia 
bluebells, /Mertensia virginica/. Both multiplying prolifically. Deer 
would come along, nip the tip off the emerging wood hyacinths, then 
saunter off, leaving interesting square tipped leaves. But never really 
ate them. Just sort of sampled.

Last year the Virginia bluebells made their typical appearance. But not 
a single wood hyacinth. All gone. And there were masses of them, as you 
can see with this image from a previous year. Not here this year either.

So I cannot tell you how to kill them. Apparently mine just suicided on 
their own.

Judy in New Jersey where a couple of really cold nights turned my large 
and happily blooming /Dicentra spectabilis/ into slumped over mushy debris
