A Shrub (also known as Grass Shrub) was a grass-like plant, similar to the Dead Bush. It was added to Minecraft as part of the Beta 1.6 Test Build 3. Not much is known about this block, other than that it was possibly meant to be a part of a Jungle Biome, but was possibly scrapped in development for possibly unknown reasons.

Shrubs can still be found in Minecraft 1.7, but can only be obtained by using the /give command or in the Creative Mode inventory. The command to get shrubs is /give @s minecraft:tallgrass 1 0.
