Common Sorrel

If you have a tropical garden, chances are that you have the common sorrel somehwere in it. This 'weed' is common in moist cultivated gardens and attracts the pale grass blue butterfly. It is a native of Europe but has been naturalized in India.
The leaves have an interesting shape and the flowers are a dainty yellow.

Pretty pictures! I love the blooms. So delicate! I have the mauve bloomers.

About your question on the laburnum, I read on one site that the pulp from the pods contain a strong laxative. But I haven't read anywhere about the plant being poisonous.
