Plant identification request

This flowering plant in the corner of my yard has individual leafy stalks that are 3-4 feet tall, and it blooms on the end of the stalk. The photos show bush, bud and bloom. Can you tell me what this is?

What is this plant that started growing in my flower pot?

I had a plant that died and I left the pot outside and this strange fellow started growing. It has little broccoli looking things on the stalk and has two stalks. When I rub up on the stalk it feels smooth and when I rub down it feels rough and jagged.

What type of hornet is this

it was around 930pm and I was outside smoking a cigarette. On my way back in I heard the loudest buzzing noise ever in my life and turned to see something huge flying at me fast so I hit it with the door only to daze it. Then on the door frame I saw it was a huge hornet and smacked it 3 good times with the dust pan and it was still moving so I crushed its head with the dust pan and it was STILL moving. I will not kill bees but this I know was no ordinary bee it was a efin demon swooping in for the kill. .... Not tonight Satan!!!!!

Red Maple Trees and Water lines

I really need to know if red maple tree roots interfere with water lines? How far away from water lines do they need to be planted.....or does a red maple tree not interfere with water lines at all? Thank you. Shirley Sweatt in N.C.

Insect control?

I was just wondering if there was any all natural pesticides I could make? I got some 'Eight' insect control but after reading all the instructions I'm just kinda iffy of using it on my plants, I'm sure the chemicals in it are safe , but I'd still prefer something all natural so I actually know what I'm putting on them
