Elegant and stately when seen in a park or lining a boulevard, bigleaf linden is a versatile shade and specimen tree for spacious landscapes. A large deciduous tree from Europe where it is celebrated, it becomes an upright tree with a broad column-like stature. Although called "bigleaf", the size of its leaves are only marginally larger than other lindens called "littleleaf". The bark is sandy brown to brown and is ridged and furrowed; the young twigs are red-brown and hairy, one of this species' distinguishing features.The dark green leaves are wide ovals that taper to a point. Glossy, the leaf edges are lined in tiny teeth. They occur on the haired sienna brown twigs. In midsummer, pendent clusters of fragrant off-white flowers occur, attracting nectar-seeking bees in profusion. The ribbed, pea-sized, whitish tan fruits (nutlets) dangle downward and are showiest in late summer. In fall the foliage becomes yellow to yellow-green.Grow big leaved linden in full to partial sun in a fertile, deep, moist soil that ideally is neutral to alkaline in pH. This species is tolerant of acidy soils as well as air pollution and drought once established. It handles shearing well and can be used as a large estate hedgerow or wide boulevard allee. It is equally impressive as a park tree when its lowest branches remain and creates a massive gumdrop-shaped effect atop the lawn. Unfortunately, Japanese beetles enjoy lunch with this tree.
