Rearing out another caterpillar

caterpillar
I am rearing a couple of these green caterpillars to see what they will turn into. I'm guessing they are geometer moths.

bush on which caterpillars were found
This is the plant I found them on at the arboretum.

purple flowers
It has pretty lavender flowers...

trumpet shaped flowers
...that hang down like trumpets.

munchings
The leaves are fairly large, soft, sticky, and the whole plant kind of stinks. But the caterpillars sure like it.
