I started out composing this post by whining about how I couldn't identify these bugs, even with the aid of BugGuide. Then I remembered to search on the plant name too, and voilà! Jagged Ambush bug, Phymata erosa.
These individuals weren't too happy about being observed, and crawled away to the underside of the flower when I tried to get closer.
