Description

The common laburnum is small tree of the Fabaceae family, native to southern Europe from France to the Balkan Peninsula. It is remarkable for its pendant clusters of bright yellow pea-flowers, which makes it a popular ornamental tree and explains its common name: golden chain tree. Its dark-colored wood can be used in cabinetwork. It is also very toxic and could be dangerous to grow around young children as any part of the tree may cause poisoning.
