I don't know how well it will work with iris.  I also don't know if the 
variety of willow will effect results.  You can make a root stimulator from 
willow cuttings fairly easy.  Get a good amount of young willow stems, 
and stike with a hammer a few times to bust the stems.  You could also 
bend it around a few times to open it up a little better.  Bring some 
water to a boil.  Turn heat off, and shortly after add the willow stems.  
Cover, and llow them to steep until cool.  Do not boil the willow stems.  
Think of it, as a willow tea.  This creates a more bacteria-free willow 
water, than just soaking stems in water for days.  If you use this on iris, 
please post your results.  It works really good for tomato transplants.  
Good luck.
