I have had excellent luck taking cuttings in late winter and early spring; rooting has occurred very quickly. You may even find that branches cut for the catkin display will root in the vase -- this is a plant that wants to grow! According to Michael Dirr's Manual of Woody Landscape Plants, willow cuttings root readily whether hardwood or softwood at any time of year.
