Follow on planting/succession

I spent this miserrable day planning  our new project; stream, pond and seating area in memory of Mum and late dog Tula. 2 x Large beds planned , 4 x 3m plus raised banks adjacent to the stream from the spoil created . Got my plant list of things i have got, annuals to fill. Never done this before...
Have plotted drifts of Foxgloves and Delphiniums but what to follow on from them in July,: underplanting 3 shrub Roses- DA Gertrude Jeckyll amd 3 x Princess of ?? Pink ? 
Campanula,  geraniums rozatte , salvia ?? What looks good under Roses and lasts till Autumn 🍂

    I grow verbena rigida under my Falstaff roses.
    The violet flowers really shine out from around July onward and looks good with the deep red of Falstaff.

    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    The shrubby types of salvia flower right through until autumn, and so do hardy fuchsias (they aren't all huge). The salvias like a decent amount of sun but fuchsias are OK with  shade.
