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.
