Large clusters pale yellow flowers. Likes to grow in poor grassland on well-drained clay, limy and chalky soils. It is often found at the edges of woodland, on river banks and roadside verges.

Hairy St John’s wort is very similar to common St John’s wort (H. perforatum) but can be distinguished by the downy stems and the much longer leaves.
