They have yellow pea-flowers in pendulous racemes in spring, which makes them very popular garden trees. In Laburnum Anagyroides the racemes are 10–20 cm (4–8 in) long, with densely packed flowers. The leaves are trifoliate, somewhat like a clover, the leaflets typically 2–3 cm (¾–1¼ in) long. All parts of the plant are poisonous and can be lethal if consumed. The heart-wood of a laburnum may be used as a substitute for ebony or rosewood, very hard and a dark chocolate brown, with a butter-yellow sapwood.
