Is this a butterfly bush? If yes, would it be worth while pruning as it doesn't look that healthy?

Most people call a Buddleja a 'Butterfly tree' but this isn't a buddleja, I think it looks more like a hebe. You can prune them, but normally a bit later in the year.

Ok thank you. I'll leave it and see how it flowers in the summer.
Thanks for your time in looking and answering me

You're welcome. You could always tidy it up a bit by snipping off the dead flowers and any dead 'bits' in the meantime.
