A sconce is a light fixture that’s attached to a wall.

A planter is large pot or other container that holds . . . a plant.

Which begs the question:  “what do you call a planter mounted on a wall?” (pictured above).

My term, at least:  “a planter sconce.” 🙂

P.S.: Two other candidates, courtesy of Alan Crystal: “plonce” or “scanter.”
