My butterfly bush has some brown twigs. Should I cut them back. There is new growth on some of them.

Your plant will look neater if you prune away the dead stems and twigs. Pruning encourages new growth so pruning your shrub back a little all over should result in a flush of healthy new growth. Enjoy!
