     My response----------

     Most all decidious plants (those that loose their leaves each fall) can
be rooted successfully if cuttings are taken at the "correct" time.
Naturally occurring hormones (don't you just luv 'em!) translocate downward
(from terminals) beginning in mid-late summer.
     If one can take cuttings when a large portion of these hormones are
around the base (limb collar) of the cutting, I'd suspect that they could be
rooted without additional or outside IBA, etc.
     The most common method of rooting peach and several other stone fruits
is under mist in a greenhouse which is most effective during summer months.

     Hope this helps.
