Bushes, also often described interchangeably as shrubs, are small to medium-sized plants characterized by having woody stems that are located above the ground. With multiple stems and shorter heights than trees, bushes are commonly differentiated from shrubs by their natural presence in the wild (shrubs are often cultivated and shaped in gardens) and foliage that often nearly touches the ground (shrubs have more vertical foliage).
