You might be able to grow a clematis vine up through it without "choking" it. However pussy willow trees tend to have fibrous, thirsty root systems that outcompete most other plants so it is difficult to grow things close to it. If you try a clematis as an experiment, please do not be too disappointed if it does not work out.
