simple basic grammar question - classical Nahuatl

When a[tl] is possessed, it becomes, for example, "iauh", his water. What
happens when the possession is modified with an embed? For example -
If I wanted to render the English phrase "my flowery water" in Nahuatl,
would it become:
*noxochia? or *noxochiauh?
Is there a rule someone can articulate for this?
