History

Hokusai was selected by English enthusiast Collingwood Ingram in the 1920s, and named after a 19th century artist. It is likely to be a form of one of the earliest Japanese flowering cherries introduced to Europe by von Siebold in the 1860s, known at the time as Prunus cerasus rosea-pleno.
