We had a very dry spring as well but OK now. I have a huge garden and couldn't possibly water much of it so I don't water anything after I've watered it in. Rarely lose anything but I choose plants that can cope.
just enough to stop it drying too much for too long. You'll never need to water it again after this year

Don't be too diligent with the water, they look OK to me for new plantings and they don't do well in wet soil
Fungi are part of the breaking down of dead wood, this fungus and elder are often see together. The fungus is the result, rather than the cause, of dead and dying wood. Fungal spores are always in the air and will find a home where a tree/shrub is dying
Yes, a spiraea, someone will be able to tell you which one
The red is Centranthus ruber, aka Valerian, bees love the flowers, it will regrow if cut back.
I can't see the bush, clearly. Can you get a closer view to show the leaf shape. One of the spiraeas is a possibility
Probably Salvia pratensis and Vicia sativa, Common Vetch

Like what? smell or no smell?
