Would you pair a rose with Jackmanii clematis?

I have an approx 4ft by 6.5 ft trellis. I am thinking of putting a jackmanii clematis on it. Would you pair a rose with it? If so, any suggestions? Maybe the Clem will actually get too large for it even. The bed is only about 3 ft deep. This is on the east side of my house. Zone 5—I’m thinking I’m 5 a because my yard seems behind in growth compared to areas just ten minutes south of me.

Ive already purchased the clematis so I have to put it somewhere....

There are just so many lovely roses available. I want to try to squeeze some more in my yard. I love the look of roses against a wall/house but I do understand limitations of climbers here.
