Big Golden Star is an attractive hawthorn, named for its golden autumnal foliage, and perhaps for its deeply lobed leaves which have a star-like shape.
Spring brings a mass of white blossom.
The red fruitlets are very large by hawthorn standards, up to 4cm diameter, and can be used for cooking, making this a useful tree for edible landscaping.
