Fungus? Mold?

Posted by kohalagirl79 California (My Page) on

I just noticed this white foamy substance growing on some of our plants right where the leaves meet the stem. It's sort of liquid like when you touch it. I attached a picture I'm not sure what kind of plants these are (the previous owners planted them). They sort of look like daisies, but they grow in a bush. The plant looks healthy otherwise.
Any help would be appreciated.

Not fungus or mold. Foam generated by a young spittlebug which is hiding underneath it.

Thanks for the info! From what I just read about them, I will not worry about it.
