A Marble Sprout is a sapling exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign. It grows from a Marble Bean, can be dug out by Shovel/Regal Shovel and drop a Marble Bean.

A Marble Shrub is an object similar to a Tree exclusive to Don't Starve Together, introduced in A New Reign. It grows from a Marble Sprout and requires a Pickaxe to mine like a Marble Tree or a Petrified Tree.

There are three variants that can grow, the Round, Cubic and Pyramid.

Its growth cycle is slower than an Evergreen's. It takes 0.3125-0.625 days for a Marble Sprout (planted bean) to grow to a Stage 1 Marble Shrub, then 5-6.25 days to Stage 2 and another 5-6.25 days to Stage 3. It stays at Stage 3 for 5-6.25 days before reverting to a Stage 1 Shrub again. Growing is not affected by Seasons, but a survivor needs to be within 2-3 screens of marble during Stage 2 before Stage 3 growth can begin. A reasonable strategy for fast growth would be to plant the marble, observe on day 7, and harvest 6 days later on day 13.


Marble shrubs are fire resistant, but can be destroyed with pickaxe or Structure-damaging features. Destroying a Stage 3 shrub takes 10 swings of a pickaxe, 7 by a mighty Wolfgang, 5 by a player who consumed Honey Crystals, or 4 by Wolfgang with honey crystals. A Clockwork Rook can be taunted to harvest clumps of marble shrubs rapidly. A forest type Reanimated Skeleton attracted by a Shadow Thurible will serve the same purpose. 1 Gunpowder or 10 Slurtle Slime is required for exploding/harvesting a Stage 3 shrub, but can explode 3 or more tightly spaced shrubs at once. Befriended Merms will mine Marble Shrubs quickly and safely.
