After a rainy Spring, our Newport Purple Leaf Plum tree grew by leaps and bounds. And after a heavy rain storm in June, the branches of the tree were ladden with so much rain water that they were actually bending down; almost ready to snap. I ended up putting a few bungee cords around the tree to keep the branches upright until they dried.
A day or two later, I removed the bungee cords and pruned the really long branches. The veining in the leaves really caught my attention.
