Frida y Diego Garden Bed
The gardens of Casa Azul were influenced by both Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. The four-tiered pyramid was built to showcase Diego’s collection of pre-Hispanic art. The frog-themed fountain reflects Frida’s nickname for Diego (toad). This is the heart of Casa Azul garden, where you will find tropical plants and succulents; bougainvillea, calla lilies, and agave.
