Statice leaves typically remain green, even when dried, so aside from improper growing conditions, I can think of no reason for the leaves to take on a reddish hue. You might have your soil tested to find out the pH level (anything too high or too low might bind up necessary nutrients such as phosphorous or potassium).

Best wishes with your statice!
