I don't think there is a difference. It's just different terminology. I just looked it up, it sounds like shrub means a single plant, while bush can refer to a shrubby, treed area. You know, like out in the bush.
A bush is a short woody growth with many stems, whilst a shrub (scrybb) is used as a screening to a pathway.
Like arusho I had to look it up to make sure. Good question and gets you thinking.
Technically there is no difference between a bush and shrub. Just terminology. A shrub is a woody perennial that is usually smaller than 10 to 12 feet at maturity. Whereas trees are woody plants that grow over 15 feet at maturity. Usually shrubs have a swmaller maximum height than a tree at maturity based on the variety and species and amount of water available. The term bush is just another description of a shrub. Though a bush typically signifies a rounded shrub of sorts that needs shaped. Like the description of a bushy tailed squirrel or even better a bushy mustache...a thick shrub that usually requires pruning and trimming. At the end of the day, the bush is a shrub.
Basic difference between the two is, a shrub is a multiple branched/stemmed Woody plant while the Bush is a thick unarranged group/colloction of shrubs.
