OMQ: “The Largest Tree?” Mark 4.32

In the parable of the mustard seed Jesus says that the mustard tree is the “largest of all garden plants, with such big branches that the birds can perch in its shade.” (Mark 4:30–32 NIV11). Does this make sense? What was his point? Any ideas? Please let me know.
