As much as I like roses, I like Echinaceas too. And I think Echinaceas are great companions for roses. Once they start blooming in late spring/early summer they continue till frost and provide additional color when roses are in between blooms.

Here's Mary Rose with Echinacea Pink Double Delight:

Perfect companions and nice color echoes. As for the lilies, I'm happy to see them in two threads or even more than two.
