Kathy, do you happen to know what it's botanical name is? (Lots of plants get labelled 'butterfly bush' either because the flowers look like butterflies or the plant is attractive to them.)

If your plant is Buddleja davidii, then it should be starting into leaf by now so it can get ready to flower toward the end of summer.

PS if you leave the caps lock OFF it makes your postings much easier to read. Thanks.
