Briefly described, the blooms are a stippled orange plicatta on top of orange-red. Named for the Aztec god of agriculture, flowers, music, song, poetry, and dance, this bold cultivar is remarkable for its distinction. The stippling and plicatta occur in shades of cedar, orange, and mahogany red, forming the plicatta or stippled (or dotted), burnished overlay above medium-orange. The overall impression is red-orange and gold. Yellow webbing flashes out from the semi-sculpted halo formed by closely spaced dots, above a yellow to green throat. The serrated edges are wine red. Three-four way branching, recurrent. Fertile.
