Description
Shrubs are these plants in skyrim which you see all the time. This new version is based on Vurts Flora Overhaul, HDplants+Herbs and 2K Texture pack by Bethesda. I mixed all that together in one handy mod. Most of these files were edited by myself in colour, sharpness and size.

Content of this mod (overwrite all plain vanilla textures in folders):
textures\plants\ (115 files)
textures\landscape\grass\ (30 files)
textures\landscape\dirtcliffs\ (4 files)
__ dirtcliffs01.dds (*n) - dirtcliffsroots01.dds (*n)

For a more dense vegetation try the mesh-mod ''Lush Greens''. If you expect performance issues (FPS losses) then shut down the shadows on landscape textures like this:

My Games\Skyrim\ SkyrimPrefs.ini
[Display]
bTreesReceiveShadows=0
bShadowsOnGrass=0
bDrawLandShadows=0
; Do not set to Zero all at once.. take one by one and check your game performance every time.
; Another way to get more FPS (FramesPerSeconds), you could play with a lower resolution
; (not FullHD 1920x1080)

Lush Trees and Grass by DMP, if you haven't installed Lush Greens here on steam workshop

Skyrim Flora Overhaul skyrim.nexusmods.com/mods/141 by vurt
HDplants + Herbs by Dartanis or

Credits go to Vurt and Dartanis.

''1K_DDS_Shrubs.esp'' is an empty file and the bsa-archive should have 54.692.423 bytes.
(*n) is a shortcut for a normal map (illumination/Beleuchtung) that's associated with texture

@m1a2x : Funny nickname.. about your death bell suggestion. I decided me to change the look of death bell flowers to a non glowing variant. Unfortunatly there was no way to keep left the blue color. I don't see brownish flowers in solitude palast. If you like to have the original you have to change this texture ''Data\textures\plants deathbell01.dds''

seems this makes death bells look... well... dead... Which makes the game strange at points. Like, why would a king or queen have dead brownish flowers decorating their hall? I suggest adding another viarety, which is still bluish purple.

@Dragontamer39: A solution.. if it works fine.

@ReDragon, Yes I was talking about the rather popular Skyrim HD 1.6v.
So are both mod compatible?
And how exactly do I place them together? how should I manage the load order?

Well i just made a new user and it works on that user. So i'll just delete that user i played on before. I'll have to restart though. I'd care anyway i like it when your low level it gets hard.
