'Cherry' Ingram

 

The hundred-year life of Cherry Ingram saw him fall for the cherry trees of Japan and take them home to cultivate. Upon return in 1926, Ingram was saddened to see the variety of trees being replaced by a single variant, and so he resolved to take striking variants back from his garden to their native Japan - an act bringing about strange stories and political ramifications.
