This feature is exclusive to Legacy Console Edition.
Shrubs placed in an intersection between a taiga, a roofed forest and a desert.

Shrubs are variants of grass that do not generate naturally 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. Like grass blocks, their color changes depending on the biome they are placed in.

Shrubs in Java Edition did not change color depending on the biome.

Green shrubs were an additional and independent variant of shrubs in Java Edition who's color changed depending on the biome, similar to the shrub in Legacy Console Edition. They were eventually changed to look the same as normal shrubs. Later, both were removed from Java Edition completely.


Shrubs, though they were identical in appearance to the dead bushes found in deserts and badlands, do not naturally generate and can be found only in the creative inventory.



From block loot[edit]

When broken normally, shrubs drop 0 or 1 wheat seeds. They can be obtained as an item using shears.

Shrubs have a 18 chance of dropping wheat seeds when broken without using shears.[more information needed]

The only difference between the shrubs texture and the dead bush texture is that the shrub appears shorter, or sunk into the ground by 1 pixel.

List of colors[edit]

It has been requested that this section be created.
Further notes: can we have a table like with other biome-affected blocks demonstrating shrub colors? preferably also include potted green shrubs, since this page is history anyway
