Growth on rose bushes

Asked June 26, 2018, 6:21 PM EDT

While removing the dead blooms from our rose bushes, we found quite a number of growths on the stems. Most of them were 1/2 inch to 1 inch in diameter; some were larger and gray in color. What is this growth and is it harmful to the rose bush? Thank you for your advice!
