Pure Filifera or hybrid Filibusta?

Just wondering what people think of that Canvey Island, Essex (51N) 'Filifera' that has gone from strength to strength. The 2009 to 2024 comparisons are shown. Pure Filifera, or mixed blood?? The petiole bases are entirely green, but I know that doesn't necessarily count for much. The petiole bases on Will Simpson's washie are also entirely green and his is definitely a hybrid. Anyway...

2009...
