I bought some Asiatic Lilies (yellow; two-toned) as well as Shasta Daisies (banana cream). I have in mind not planting them next to each other.

What goes nicely with them?

OP I'm particularly fond of Russian Sage and Purple Cone Flowers. Although I don't know that they are the best match for your daisies and lillies.I like blues and purples.

Thank you, R1!

I've been told that Day Lilies would partner well with the Shasta Daisies.

Something shorter and purple. Liatris; flax; campion; 4 o'clocks; mallow;verbena.

Russian Sage can get pretty big. Like a shrub. In zone 7 it can get 4ft x 3 ft. You may want to check what it'll do in your zone.

I love the purple cornflower idea.

Amorphophallus titanum.

There are approximately one-jillion or so daylily types varying in size, color and blooming time and, yes, they are easy to cultivate and can be a great addition to your perennial garden - they are fun and rewarding - you might get some attitude from garden snobs, but, to quote Nancy Pelosi, "who cares". Purple statice is nice with shasta daisies, also.
