A common little wildflower of sandhills, scrub and flatwoods throughout much of the Florida peninsula, plus Taylor and Bay Counties. The range includes Georgia and South Carolina.
Of the Galactia species in Florida, this is the only one with white flowers and more than three leaflets. Elliott's milkpea is a vine, both sprawling and erect with hairy stems and the lower portions woody. The small white flowers are pea-shaped. The fruit is a linear hairy pod.
