Kahlo made liberal use of heavy terra cotta pots in her garden.  They were often placed on concrete or stone retaining walls and usually contained a single specimen plant.  This is radically different from the now fashionable practice of filling a container with many plants of different colors and textures.  A single plant in a pot looks more like a sculpture and works especially well for cacti, succulents, and other desert plants such as agave and yucca.
