Can you confirm what type of tree/bush this is growing in my garden? I have attached two pictures of a bush that is in the front garden of my new house. A lot of people have said it's a laburnum but I have not seen any yellow flowers. Many thanks for your help.

I agree this is Laburnum.

It seems to be considered a difficult tree to grow, but I also read reports of once established in a good location it is a spectacular blooming tree.

Here is a link with it's growing requirements and characteristics.
Please note the fact that all parts of this tree is poisonous.
