Laburnum is a flowering tree which can grow to 7m in height. During May to June it is covered in numerous pendulous pea like yellow flowers each about 2cm long. The tree develops sooth dark brow pods (4cm - 6cm long). They remain on the tree after splitting open to expose the seeds. of early summer produce the pods and pea-like fruit
Symptoms can include:
Abdominal pain, convulsions, coma, muscle spasms, lack of corordination

Although a widely grown ornamental tree laburnum has now become naturalised in some areas. Fatal poisoning in horses has been reported although this appears to have been brought about by the horse being tied to a laburnum tree and then eating the seeds and pods from that tree. All parts of the tree are poisonous, although the bark and seeds do more damage than the leaves.
