Gardenias are super easy to root in water. I have air layered many camellias and azaleas as well.

For crepe myrtles, I cut a piece about 5 inches long, and dip one end in wax to keep it from drying out. I then stick the other end into a pot of potting mix leaving only about one inch exposed. Mid-winter is the perfect time, and you'll see little leaves emerge in late spring.

I've had really good luck with hydrangeas. They root really quick and easy and take off and grow fast.

Something else that is super easy to root is a grape vine.

Morning glory. I was given some cuttings, I rooted them in a glass of water, then started them in a pot. They spread upward on a trellis. They have beautiful blue blooms, but the vines grow quickly, you really have to control them once they take hold. This was in San Diego, California. Never had any luck with bougainvillea cuttings.

Your willow should root easily.

They root pretty well (in water, but may root in soil as well). I have rooted Cairo Morning Glory (Ipomoea cairica) and it's growing pretty well. They are invasive though.
