Flower Fairies by Cicely Mary Barker - Laburnum Flower Fairy
The Laburnum Fairy
Laburnum is a genus of two species of small
trees in the subfamily Faboideae of the pea family Fabaceae, Laburnum
anagyroides (Common Laburnum) and L. alpinum (Alpine Laburnum).
Laburnum seed toxicity is a common cause of
poisoning in young children, who mistake the seeds for peas. 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, diarrhoea is very severe and at times the
convulsions are markedly tetanic.
