Crepis paludosa is found beside shady burns, and in other damp shady places. The inflorescence is around 15–25 millimetres (0.6–1.0 in) in diameter. The upper leaves of marsh hawksbeard clasp the stem with pair of rounded basal lobes. The plant is perennial. It is a much more robust plant than smooth hawksbeard, Crepis capillaris, with which it is sometimes confused. Flower heads are yellow and the flower buds are covered with black gland-hairs.
