Laburnum such a familiar sight of our countryside an amazing blast of bright yellow cascading flowers. But it hides a guilty secret as all parts of the plant are poisonous and this seems a little surprising when you realise that it is part of the pea family Faboideae.
It has been known for people to remove it from their garden in fear but it is as with many other plants once you are aware and give the tree the respect it deserves it is more than worthy of garden space.
See @DaisyDays recent post. Do you have any pictures to share of this favourite specimen?
