I believe so. In the Sutton catalog, the picture shows a reverse pattern. Their picture was taken in cooler temperatures, and the lavender (pinkish) standards show.
The reverse pattern you mention is subtlely evident on newly opening blooms here. Attached is a photo of a newly opening bloom taken the same day as the previously posted photo. The lilac/lavender/pink tints are also more evident in this photo.
