The Oxford English Dictionary has broad-leaved as the headword, with
broad-leafed as a variant form. The latest edition of the Shorter Oxford
English Dictionary has only broadleaved (no hyphen). So neither is
incorrect, but there is a distinct preference for the -ved form, and
modern usage is to treat it as a single word, broadleaved.
