baby joe pie weed stem color

Does anyone know if this plant loses its dark stem color over time (reverts to the species)?

Why do you ask? Was your Baby Joe Pye red stemmed when you first got it, and is the red starting to turn green? If the plant is a cloned cultivar, then it should be exhibiting red coloring. If the plants are grown from seed it could be a rare green phenotype.
