I've been thinning out my pulmonaria and,for the most part, removing plants with boring leaves.

If I sliced the top off some of the boring ones instead, would the leaves come back exactly the same, or is there a chance they'd be more spotty?

    If the boring ones have always been that way then any new leaves will be the same. If by boring you mean faded/weathered/mildewy/tatty, then fresh new leaves will look better.

    Thanks all. By boring,I mean plain dull green or green with just a few spots.
    The ones with 50%+silver or white ,I keep.
    Absolutely no shortage of plants to choose from. They self-seed all over the shop😉
