[gardening] Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart

A few flowers on my Old Fashioned Bleeding Heart:

Old fashioned bleeding heart

I planted this last fall and was happy that it bloomed at all. 

Currently I'm dealing with a beetle problem- they look like japanese beetles but they look more gold to me. They're eating leaves on my new ornamental trees and look to be damaging a few shrubs. I have another shrub that is turning black- I have no idea why. Some rust is popping up on coneflower leaves. Aphids are sucking a lot of young plants dry. I'm spraying bug killer here and there. I need to get a gardener with a greener thumb than mine to come up and diagnose all the problems. Before everything dies.
