Various heights; various places

I posted on here last year....where do you put a 10-12 foot clematis? My garden is only 3 years old but I couldn't figure out many spots for such a tall one. The answer was mostly along a fence.

What about an 8-10 foot clematis? Most of the commercial obelisks I see (and we are not handy here!) are about 6 feet tall. So if you want to pair a clematis with a rose and you live in a zone similar to mine, i.e, 6, where we do have a winter and things die to the ground, how do you position a clematis that is taller than 6 feet?

I have learned with a rose that is not a super strong grower/fairly young to choose a less aggressive clematis, maybe a non-vining integrefolia?

Fences, arbors, trees, pergolas, sheds

You can let them flop back down. They don't have to match the top of the support exactly.

There is a thread asking about pictures of Clematis not on fences, you might find some ideas there.
