Frost-hardy cut flowers/foliage

Is there such a thing as frost-hardy flowers and foliage to use on a grave?  I know you can pop tubs of cyclamen etc around, but I am specifically asking for cut plants that can survive in water rather than soil.  Thank you in advance for any answers.

Frost-hardy cut flowers? I think that that will be hard, due to the freezing water that they will be standing in... I think that flowers that will be suitable for drying will suit the job for a bit, Eryngium, Achillea... or winter flowering shrubs as Prunus subh autumnalis, Forsythia, Viburnum bodnantense, Ilex crenata, or bulbs... just thinking out loud. I'm curious for other suggestions! :)

Thanks for you answer Christian. It is a difficult one for sure. Some good ideas in your reply to consider. I have toyed with the idea of using holly as round here is spectacular in berry at the moment, along with Symphoriccarpos but it just looks too Christmassy!

Any cut flower fill die within a week. Forsythia and hydrangeas i have had a good luck with.
