I think the easiest way to do what you want is to use two layers, each with it own standard layer mask.
1. Duplicate the layer.
2. On the bottom layer apply the gradient layer mask.
3. On the top layer, apply the layer mask to hide all, then paint with white to bring the flowers back in.
Or, if you're careful, you could do it with just the one layer and mask.
Apply the layer mask with the gradient first, then carefully paint in the mask with white to fully reveal the flowers.
Both options will generate the example you provided.
