What can I plant with oriental lilies?

eks6426(5b)April 4, 2006

I'm planning a flowerbed with some oriental lilies in it because they are so beautiful and smell divine. But I'd like to plant a companion (or 2 or 3) so I don't just have long stalks during the late spring/early summer. Any suggestions on good companion plants?

Roses, ornamental grass, Echinacea. Anything. I tuck in Lilies anywhere I can insert my trowel.
