I just found on Garden Compass magazine that white willow bark contains
the rooting hormone indolebutyric acid. You can also make a tea from the
fresh branches, and there are many directions for this on the web. Sandy

been used for decades for rooting ...
The indolebutyric acid is related to and has similar properties to our
common asprin as a medicine, so white willow is used as a pain reliever
as a tea.
