Missouri Botanical Garden holds accessions of Shortia galacifolia in orthodox seed banking.
Endemic to the southern Appalachian Mountains. The species has lost populations in the past due to horticultural collection, and multiple dam construction projects; the long-looked-for type locality is now under the waters of Lake Jocassee in South Carolina. Despite its very local distribution, the species is abundant at many of the remaining sites.
recorded from one county in Georgia
