We planted roses on my brother's grave years ago, but the maintenance chap mowed them down and we were told it was too awkward to mow if people planted up graves.
But the graveyard where my parents are has lots of planted up graves, some very pretty. Lots have bulbs and also there are a lot of hardy fuschias. Before my mother died we chose 3 hardy fuschias for my father's grave and they look lovely in summer. My mother is now in the grave with him so my brother dug everything up before her funeral and replanted them. Fuschias only need a visit in early spring to cut down the old wood.
My father gave me a horse called Lena and one of the fuschias is called Lena.
