Widespread in the south of England, this species becomes coastal further north and is rare in Scotland. Similar to the Common Centaury, this species is much smaller, but still has the pink, erect flowers. The leaves are quite slim. This species is found in woodlands, grasslands, and heaths, as well as other habitats.
