Shrubs are variants of grass that do not generate naturally[Java Edition only] and are currently only obtainable in Legacy Console Edition via the creative inventory. They have the same characteristics as grass and ferns, but use a texture similar to dead bushes.
Green shrubs were an additional and independent variant of shrubs in Java Edition whose color changed depending on the biome. They were eventually changed to look the same as normal shrubs. Later, both were removed from Java Edition completely.
When broken normally, shrubs have a 1⁄8 chance of dropping wheat seeds, due to being a type of grass. This drop rate is affected by fortune like normal grass as well. Shrubs can be obtained as an item using shears.
The shrub uses an identical texture to the dead bush.
The only visual difference between the shrub and the dead bush is that the shrub appears shorter, or sunk into the ground by 1 pixel.
