Pruning And Cutting Back - Knowledgebase Question

Question by lewsmad

I am truly an amateur gardener and am confused
when someone tells me to "cut back to the ground". I have 4 spireas also called Blue-Mist.
Does this mean I should cut off all branches down to the ground or just the dead wood?
Also butterfly bushes.....Do I cut all branches down to 6-10" from the ground or 6-10" off the top?
