Thick or Rough leaf

Is it proper to say thick or rough leaf?

I want to describe the leaves of the plants which are characterized by reserving dew and moisture in the desert.

Thanks a lot

    A leaf may be thick, and it may be rough, and it may even be both -- but even thin leaves can be rough, and thick leaves can be perfectly smooth. The two words describe very different and unrelated characteristics that leaves can have.
