I agree with everyone. Those are aphids. The are a problem here in this part of Texas too. They come in many different colors, but basically look the same. I have read that some people wash them off, and if that works - cool. I have used soapy water, a product called, "Garden Safe", and even Malathion. Some of my earliest memories are from 1969-70 when aphids were on my grandmother's Bleeding Hearts. I don't know what they used back then - I was 4 and/or 5 years old.
