THE TENPS LOGO

Grevillea longicuspis: is a slender shrub which grows up to 1 metre in height. It is a member of the Proteacae family restricted to open woodland on well-drained slopes or low ridges in gravelly or lateritic soils in Litchfield, Manton and Blackmore river areas. Characteristically, its leaves have an holly-like irregular toothed margin. The small red flower is similar to other members of the grevillea family. It was chosen to represent our Society as it is endemic to the Top End and is not such a well known plant.
