Dead Bushes are not a solid block but instead an aesthetic weed that does not obstruct movement, similar to Sugar Cane, Wheat, Tall Grass, and hanging Vines. Dead Bushes can appear in desert biomes, mesa biomes, and sometimes in swamp biomes. They are most commonly light/dark brown in color depending on the user's texture pack.


The current uses for this item are for decoration and as a source of sticks as it drops 0–2 sticks when destroyed. If it is mined with an axe with a Silk Touch enchantment in the Beta 1.9 pre-release, or with shears, it will drop itself instead.


  • Dead bushes have an ID of minecraft:deadbush; however, there is a block called "Shrub," which has an ID of minecraft:tallgrass (the same that's shared with grass and ferns), that is visually identical to dead bushes. The only difference is that it drops seeds instead of sticks.
  • If the block below a dead bush is removed, the bush will disappear.
  • It can be placed inside a Flower Pot.
  • They are unaffected by Bone Meal.
  • Dead bushes have a blast resistance of 0.
