Butterfly bush does not tolerate wet soil; that usually means that roots are prone to rotting. In addition, wet soil forces out oxygen which the plant roots need. Even so, I would give it another 2 weeks. It may get over the shock and rally. Do not feed it during this time but it’s fine to trim it back. Good luck.
