A shrub is a woody plant, with multiple stems and usually less than 3 meters (10 feet) tall.

They are generally smaller and bushier than a tree, but larger than a bush (plant)[?]. Shrubs generally have dense foliage and many small leafy branches growing close together, giving the appearance of being a giant bush with a trunk.

Common shrubs include blueberries[?], honeysuckles[?], many willows and alders.
