The distinguishing features -

Of the native type are said to be:
Flowers are drooping, and all on the same side of the stem ("unilateral"),
Flower not spreading like a campanula, more or less a straight tube until the end where it flares out,
Anthers cream, not blue,
Leaves narrow, 7-15 mm (Spanish from about 10mm to 35mm, so the ranges overlap).
