rosetophilous / rosette-like vegetation?
Explanation:
I don't know how reliable this is since it is apparently a translation from Spanish, and there's only the one reference, but for what it's worth....

Desert Rosetophilous Brush had the lowest diversity, due to the great abundance of Sceloporus merriami. The vegetation associations with the highest diversities were Microphyllous Desert Brush (1986) and Gypsophilous Vegetation (1987).

On the steep slopes of sierras and mountain sides there is the so called rosetophilous scrub, where dominant species have rosette and succulent leaves, such as Agave, Hechtia, and Dasylirion.

Here is another text that uses "rosette-like plants", which I believe is what your term means, based on what I've seen. This text also appears to be a translation:

Within the life-forms possessing succulent leaves there is LF6 (four species) formed by arboreal rosette-like plants, LF7 (six species) with acaulescent rosette-like species, and LF8 (three species) with small rosette-like plants (some of them epiphytes).

Good luck!
