Only time will tell. Propecia alone will most likely only arrest your hair loss, which is very important.
There are two schools of thought here. One is to start on one medicine at a time to make sure you are O.K. with using it and to find out if it is doing you any good before adding another medicine. In this model, you start Propecia first, wait the full 12 months to make sure it is working for you (arresting your hair loss) and then add Rogaine for the next four to six months to see if it can grow any lost hair back for you. This makes sense becuase it helps you identify which medication is helping you the most.
The other school of thought is to attack the problem with everything available to you and who cares which medicine is doing the most good.
