I put in a butterfly bush last year and it was beautiful. In spring I cut it to about 4 ft. Will green growth start at the ground or from the stems?

You'll find growth from the pruning cuts and from the crown of the plant at ground level. Flowers are produced on new growth so your butterfly bush should reward you with lots of blooms. Enjoy!
