How to map
You can place a node () at the location of the shrub with the tag natural=shrub. However, for scrublands, which feature land covered with shrubs, drawing the area and tagging natural=scrub may be a better idea, or you can tag the area with natural=scrub and map the individual shrubs within the scrubland.
