Thanks Shelley. I read your response and have just kept checking my sticks.
And good news, one of them (the green one) has this little shoot coming out of the side. Maybe 3/8 of an inche long. So I am happy
I have seen some nice trellis that I can get to tame the bush if it ever decides to grow big.
So my stick is now a plant, YAY! I was surprised since we'd just had snow for the first time in 35 years. Didn't want the cold to make it go back to being dormant. But seems to be ok.
