In the top picture, I can see what looks to be a couple of flowers, but can't see them properly - can you post another photo showing any flowers present on the plant please?

comment Foamy liquid on plant's stems with green larvae or bug inside - pest or no problem
Oh lucky you - I had to check where you are to find out why you've got cuckoos. Don't get 'em in London

comment Should my Gaillardia be emerging by now, in Zone 6?
Shame though - I tried several times because they're attractive, but never had any luck.

comment Why did my young cucumbers turn yellow and fall off?
Well you shouldn't have to, no - but it depends on your bee/hoverfly and other pollinating insect population, if that's low, then you may need to. Some people place bee attractant plants nearby - anything native with single flowers will do.

You may be right - since it seems like centuries since I heard a cuckoo, I can't recall what month that might have been!

Just for interest's sake, in the UK, we call this 'cuckoo spit' - no idea why, just the common name. Same cause though, froghoppers.

comment What bamboo is best for outdoor pots?
All bamboo are vulnerable to cold through their roots when in pots, so you will absolutely need to insulate the pots well throughout winter and keep your fingers crossed.

comment What kind of caterpillar is this?
@GolezTrol: common names again! Lepidoptera-Yponmeutidae- Yponmeutidae cagnagella- translated: Order-Family-species/ssp. The term 'ermine moths' refers to the Yponmeutidae family in general, so that includes Spilosoma lubricipeda for example,, another member of the species (white ermine moth) that feeds on herbaceous material generally, as well as many others. But your specific pest is, indeed Y. cagnagella, and it does belong to the 'ermine' (Yponomeutidae) moth Family.
