Some Companions for Hostas

I am enthralled by the carexes, particularly C. muskingumensis and C. 
siderosticha 'Variegata'. The Galax urceolata is fabulous--must have acidic 
soil, however.
If you have open shade, try some of the wonderful alliums.
Acanthuses are a must. I was lucky this year as my A. hungaricus survived our 
harsh z5 winter.
I grow all the non-invasive lysimachias ---to an advantage. You will like 
them, particularly with blue hostas.
The omphalodeses are a must, particularly the species cappadocica, and its 
variety 'Starry Eyes'. 
What are some of you, rather unusual(not well-known) companions?
