Cycads’ only relation to the true palms (Arecaceae) is that both are seed plants. The Latin specific epithet revoluta means “curled back”,in reference to the leaves. This is also called kungi (comb) palm in Urdu speaking areas.
This very symmetrical plant supports a crown of shiny, dark green leaves on a thick shaggy trunk that is typically about 20 cm (7.9 in) in diameter, sometimes wider. The trunk is very low to subterranean in young plants, but lengthens above ground with age
 it is tolerant of mild to somewhat cold temperatures, provided the ground is dry. Frost damage can occur at temperatures below −10 °C (14 °F).
The leaves are a deep semiglossy green and about 50–150 cm (20–59 in) long when the plants are of a reproductive age. They grow out into a feather-like rosette to 1 m (3.3 ft) in diameter.
Common name – Cycas revoluta
