'Minuteman' was registered by Machen in 1994 as a 'Francee' sport. It is different from, but similar to 'Patriot'. The size is 24 x 12" with 18-30" scapes. The leaves are dark green with a wide creamy-white margin. The margin is smooth and the coloration of the leaf makes a more dramatic contrast than its progenitor. The leaves are broadly ovate with a rounded base. The leaves have good substance, are slightly shiny on top and dull grey  underneath. The flowers are tubular, pale lavender, and striped.
