I have several forms like this from Tennessee and northern Georgia. In all it is only the backs of the sepals that are pink, but it gives the appearance of a pinkish flower due to the thin texture and the pink showing through. The Joe Pye Weed form looks about the same and with proper lighting when taking images they look even more pink.

 I've had a similar
 form in my garden for decades. The one I have is not as nice
 as the Joe Pye Weed form; my plant produces flowers with
 just a bit of pink on the exterior. 
 I've had it for so long that I don't
 remember where it came from, but I have a vague recollection
 that it came from Tennessee.
