Dead bushes are transparent blocks in the form of an aesthetic plant.


Dead bushes drop 0–2 sticks when broken without shears. When shears are used, a dead bush will drop itself. Also, they do not spread, and cannot be grown using bone meal. If the block below the dead bush is removed, the bush will simply disappear without dropping anything.

Natural generation[edit]

Dead bushes will generate on sand, red sand, podzol, dirt, coarse dirt and terracotta in deserts, badlands and giant tree taigas.


Dead bushes can be used for aesthetic decoration and as a source of sticks. They can be placed on any kind of sand, terracotta, dirt or podzol, but not on mycelium or grass blocks. They can also be placed in flower pots.
