I just bought a Black Knight Butterfly Bush - I planted it 2 weeks ago. All of the blooms look dead - should I cut them all off?

Butterfly bushes bloom prolifically over a long period and it does help them bloom better and longer if you remove (deadhead) the spent flowers. If you keep deadheading the plant will continue blooming all summer into the fall.
