Dead bushes spawn during world generation in desert, badlands and giant tree taiga biomes. You might find them occasionally in flower pots in desert villages, when the inhabitants have forgotten to water their flowers for a few months (we’ve all been there), and occasionally in chests in desert houses, where perhaps the inhabitants can’t bring themselves to throw away their deceased but beloved plants.

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.
Dead bushes can be used for aesthetic decoration, as a source of sticks and a fuel source[upcoming: JE 1.14]. 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.
Dead bushes can be used as fuel, smelting one item per dead bush.

- Dead bushes dropping sticks is based on a suggestion by Reddit user pedroff_1.
