For whatever reason, I never got around to pruning back my butterfly bushes. Is it too late to do this now or should I wait until early Spring (March)?

Pruning encourages new growth which can be damaged by cold winter weather. If the butterfly bush is dormant, you can prune it now. If it is still green and growing, it would be better to wait until spring to do your pruning.
