whats up with my butterfly bush?

whats up with my butterfly bush?

it's got lots of new growth on it and last week i noticed what i could only describe as antler buds down by the base of the plant. is this a fungus? i also noticed just yesterday that some have "opened up" and theres something black in it. ive never read anything about this happening.
