Eventually. This beautiful plum tree, with it’s mass of blossoms, is in my back yard in North Saanich, Vancouver Island, and it just keeps growing bigger. This photo was taken March 22, 2007 and this year it will no doubt be bigger again. Don’t ask me the variety, I only know they’re big, almost a purple-black when they’re ripe, and very tart when they’re not! They make wonderful jam and jelly, or combined with apples or blackberries. It should be pruned but I like to see how big it will get and I can use a ladder to get up into the higher branches. Sony DSCF828 camera.

    Another bright side, the bigger it gets the less grass you have to mow.
    These things do make a spectacular sight when they blossom.

  • Ah, you noticed the lack of grass under the tree! I actually tried to seed it with some type that likes shade, but not much success. So I leave well enough alone!

    What a beautiful tree with two kinds of gifts, flowers and fruit. Congrats on the well-deserved feature!

  • Thanks again Mischa.. it’s a huge tree and should have been pruned many times, but I haven’t the heart to cut the branches so it’s just going to have to keep on!
