Toxicity:-

All parts of the plant are poisonous, and can be lethal if consumed in excess. Symptoms of laburnum poisoning may include intense sleepiness, vomiting, convulsive movements, coma, slight frothing at the mouth and unequally dilated pupils.

In some cases, diarrhea is very severe, and at times the convulsions are markedly tetanic.

The main toxin in the plant is cytisine, a nicotinic receptor agonist.
