I live in WV and have a Trumpet plant. What should I do to winter it? Do I cut to the ground like my butterfly bush or just leave it?

You don't really need to do anything for it. Trumpet vines are very hardy and withstand even weather that is colder than yours just fine.
Do not trim it back. It will continue to grow on the vines it grew this past summer. If you need to cut it back due to it getting too large, you can do so in the spring.
