I think Gene's right -- there won't be any room later for most plants.
I've had good luck with plants that like to grow in cracks -- they can
scrunch right up against the outside edge of the peony bed.  Try Ruellia
humilis for later color, Pulsatilla vulgaris 'Alba' for early spring 
interest, and possibly Origanum 'Herrenhausen' for late blooms (they're
tall, but they do well leaning out from under other plants).
