I think these might be called suckers. They are rough stem that take all the goodness, hence there long size and do not give flowers. My mother always tells me to cut these offf at the base and don't let or encourage there growth. MY INFO IS ONLY VASED ON MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE AND MUMS ADVICE. gOOD LUCK
