You can't really defy the wishes of a King's daughter!

A San Diego County sunflower grower had roughly 2,000 of the long-stemmed beauties delivered to Michael Jackson's mausoleum at Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale after hearing Lisa Marie Presley's complaint that not enough tribute (in the form of flowers) was being paid to her one-time husband.

Jason Levin, owner of the Sunflower Guy, said that he heard the jolly, bright-yellow blooms were Jackson's favorite, so he sent over a supply worth between $3,000 and $5,000.

The flowers were unloaded Thursday outside the Holly Terrace section of Forest Lawn's Great Mausoleum, where Jackson's interred remains are housed under tight security. Cemetery officials told Levin that they would see that the flowers were brought inside.

On June 25, it will be one year since the King of Pop passed away.
