Why don't Jewish people put flowers on graves? Asks about a visitor leaving flowers on a grave. The reason we don’t is that it’s “chukas hagoyim”

Does the same logic apply for a the dead person themselves. Meaning could I request that flowers be planted on my grave. Just because I think flowers are pretty and if I’m going to be paying for a random plot of land I might as well get some use out of it.

Or is there any other halachik reason I can’t have flowers planted on my grave?
