Hops with another hard-to-kill plant in a bed?

I have a bed that I'm building out of 4x12s that will be 2ft deep, 2 ft tall and 12 ft long to house some chinook hops. I have 3 rhizomes to put in the ground but have read that they can really get pretty crazy in the root systems. I would ideally like to have more than just the hops in that bed. I have moneywort that is thriving in another bed with a similar exposure.

Is it a bad idea to put both the hops and moneywort, plus maybe something else with a bit of body/height?

What would you put in that bed?
