It would be nice if there were only pure English bluebells, but it's not going to happen is it? The Spanish and the hybrids have been here for years. They were well established here when we arrived 25 years ago. They were planted in a new area of trees along the road. Huge numbers of people don't know the difference. Others don't care. There's no way I could get rid of mine from all the odd corners and I'm sure I'm not the only one in that position. Though I suppose I could spray them with something nasty, kill the surrounding plants and maybe do damage to bees while I'm about it.
If Sarah's are Spanish any natives next door are already hybridised after 20 years.
Its's as useless as killing a few Harlequin Ladybirds.
