The epithet of this new species is a reference to its compact leaf rosette due to the comparatively shorter and densely rosulate
leaves, which is a striking distinctive character of A.
Perennial acaulescent, rosulate
herbs, 5-20 cm tall.
As frequent species we can remark other shrubby halophytes such as Arthrocnemum macrostachyum, Suaeda vera or Halimione portulacoides; frequent rosulate
hemicriptophytes are Limonium angustebracteatum, Limonium caesium, Limonium cossonianum and Limonium eugeniae.
; capitulescences of few capitula Adenocaulon 16b.
Basal leaves sessile, rosulate
, simple, entire, awl-shaped or linear and grass-like, thick, parallel-veined; cauline leaves sessile, not auriculate at base, similar to basal ones but smaller, glabrous or pubescent.
Leaves 15 to 18 in number, subspreading-arcuate to distinctly recurved, densely rosulate
and forming a distinct rosette before the anthesis and afterwards; sheaths inconspicuous; blades narrowly triangular, long attenuate-caudate, 30-58 cm long, 3-4.
Leaves usually rosulate
or clustered at the median part of the stem; sessile to distinctly petiolate with petioles winged to wingless; blades linear, elliptic, obovate, deltoid to subrounded, palmately, pinnately, three- to five-veined, margin entire to partite, glabrous to pubescent on both surfaces or only beneath.
Structurally there is here -- compared to the other communities identified -- an evident increase of rosulate
Hemycryptophyte probably due to the presence of both rich soils and a fair quantity of light at ground level (Table 1).
Epiphyte, rarely saxicolous, rosulate
herbs, dioecious, flowering up to 1.
Leaves 30 to 35 in number, rosulate
, densely arranged and forming a distinct rosette before anthesis and afterwards; sheaths inconspicuous; blades narrowly sublinear-triangular, 9-12 cm long, 0.

and multiradiate trichomes were only observed in section Lobatae (red oaks) (Hardin, 1979a, b).
