Could it be Gargara genistae?
This Gargara was on pea-tree (Caragana) with 2 other specimens. According to Holzinger (The Auchenorrhyncha of Central Europe, 2003), Caragana is one of the possible hosts of Gargara genistae in Europe.
In 1921, Weiss and Dickerson wrote in Entomological News (vol. XXXII, no.4) that they had observed Gargara genistae for the first time in United States. The insects were on Caragana arborescens.

Could be. The only time I've take one in eastern NA was on a willow. There are a number of Oriental species that look very similar, so I can't be sure which is which.
