Agave havardiana or Havard's Century Plant is a plant species native to the Davis Mountains of west Texas. This succulent has proven itself to be a very cold-hardy, drought resistant plant. In the wild, it prefers grassy to rocky slopes or woodlands.
Agave havardiana is an acaulescent midsized species forming rosettes low to the ground, sometimes creating suckers but not forming large colonies like some other species. The short, silver-grey to nearly white triangular leaves of Agave havardiana are up to 60 cm long, about three to four times longer than broad, with teeth along the margins and at the tip. When the plant matures and blooms the tall candelabra inflorescence rises to over 7 metres bearing yellow to yellow-green flowers that attract birds and bees.
