This is a charming small Narcissus. It's name is very apt as the flowers are crowded at the top of their stalks, giving a jumbled effect.
Alec Gray who raised it in 1952 relates that after World War 2 an unusual year occurred when seed was set on many bulbs which normally are completely sterile. He noticed that just one seed capsule had developed on a stem of 'Cyclataz' and when gathered, contained three seeds. These ultimately developed into three excellent bulbs - 'Jumblie', 'Quince' and 'Tete a Tete'

Some seed pod!
