This medium-sized tree is a hybrid between A. campestre and A. cappadocicum subsp. lobelii. A. zoeschense 'Annae' has an open, almost spherical crown. The tree has a regular, layered habit and can reach a height of circa 10 m. The young and slender twigs that receive sufficient sunlight, turn a striking red-brown. Mature branches have a grey-brown colour. A. zoeschense 'Annae' does not form corky fissures on its twigs. The leaf, slightly resembling A. campestre, unfurls dark purple, fading gradually into dark green. The leaf margin is slightly more curvaceous than of the A. campestre and is a little larger. Important ornamental feature is the autumn colouring of the glossy, dark green leaf into many red to orange hues. In a sunny site it often stands out better. The fibrous root growth is shallow. Good resistance to air pollution and insensitive to diseases and pests.
