All parts of the laburnum are toxic, especially the seed & bark.

Laburnum is cholagogue,purgative,diuretic,emetic, laxative,poison.
The leaves have a similar effect to tobacco & have been used in treating nicotinism
The seed has been used in the treatment of whooping cough & asthma.
Can be used to bring on vomiting,constipation,cramps,depression,vertigo,water retention.
Too dangerous for use,even as a topical.


All parts, including the seeds are extremely poisonous. 
Eating as few as 20 seeds can kill an adult. 
Symptoms of poisoning include abundant salivation, vomiting,convulsions,hypertension, tachycardia, arrhythmia & respiratory signs.
Signs of laburnum poisoning also include nausea, dizziness, mouth, throat & stomach pain, sweating, headache, vomiting with blood, spasms, paralysis, decreased urine excretion,decreased breathing & death.
Higher doses can produce intense sleepiness, convulsive possibly tetanic movements, coma, slight frothing at the mouth & unequally dilated pupils.


Extremely protective & great for purification.
Dreaming of this tree in bloom predicts that you will overcome the adverse influences around you by vigorous application of intelligent effort.
The flowers mean forsaken, pensive beauty.
It is said that the Laburnum & Lilac would mourn, if a tree of like kind was cut down in their vicinity, by not blooming the next year.
