Butterfly Bush

I assume you're talking about buddleja?

I suspect they are suffering from transplant shock. It's likely that the roots have been damaged and can no longer sustain the amount of flowers and foliage they used to. I would cut the shrub hard back to lessen the demands on the roots while they recover.  Ensure that they are well watered. 

This site is primarily UK focused and few of us will have knowledge of the differences in gardening in various parts of the USA.

And not a lot of use advertising seed potatoes at this time of year anyway - she's not going to get trampled in the rush
