Malus Golden Hornet is known for its display of golden-yellow crab apples, it holds the fabulous fruits well into the winter season. In April-May, white flowers flushed with shades of pink smother the branches, covering the mid-green foliage which turns a warm, bronzed yellow in the autumn.
The tree itself is compact and will grow to 5 x 4 metres in 20 years. The Malus 'Golden Hornet' tree is tolerant of most positions but prefers soil to be moist and well-drained. Ideal for culinary use, the globular crabs are also popular with wildlife, particularly bees who take a keen interest in the nectar and pollen supply from this ornamental crab apple tree.
