English bluebells vs Spanish ones

Last spring, my mother-in-law gave me four bluebell plants after flowering which she asserted were English bluebells.  I put them in along with 50 or so English bluebells bulbs I bought. 

They have now flowered and I can see they're either Spanish or hybrids with Spanish characteristics.  I pulled them out, but now looking around other gardens in our village there are more Spanish/hybrids than anything else.  My back garden is a combination of walled and fenced.  Am I fighting a losing battle here? Are they likely to get hybridised anyway?
