The desert shrub is a plant that generates naturally in deserts.


If mined with shears, the desert shrub will drop itself, otherwise it drops 1-2 sticks.

Natural Generation

The desert shrub generates naturally in desert biomes.


The desert shrub can be placed on sand, dirt, or grass blocks. If it doesn't have one of these blocks underneath, it will break, dropping nothing.
