Problem with sedum spurium smothering bulbs

I'm having trouble with the sedum spurium in my rock garden creeping over top of my miniature narcissi and smothering them. I already have two clumbs that have stopped blooming. Does anyone have any ideas as to how I might protect the space where the bulbs live? Maybe I could plant an annual on top of the bulbs to fend off the spurium?

Surround the bulbs with stones!

Hmmmm.... maybe it would work to place a midsize rock on top of each bulb clump for the summer and then remove them all in spring.
